From Rail to Road

Loading from the rail to the road shows live the syndicate Truck Modeling in Echtdampf

At the International Model Railway Exhibition in Cologne special display layouts depict true-to-life scenes related to the topic. For example, truck models and railways demonstrate the loading and transportation of freight and goods under the motto "From rail to road" on a specially designed layout for remote-controlled vehicles in scales 1:16 and 1:25.

The large railway layout that is part of the Cologne Steam Meeting is the appropriate setting for the scenes and activities, which we would otherwise only know from real-life container terminals. Forklifts and cranes remove the bulk solids such as corn from the train and load them onto trucks. Then the cargo is driven across the layout to the next station, where a fascinated audience can see it being unloaded and reloaded once again.
