Regional Train 12568 is arriving at Montefiascone Station. Please stay behind the yellow line. This is not a joke. During Model Expo Italy in September, the Treno Roma Association will set up a perfect scale reproduction of Montefiascone Station on the Viterbo-Attigliano Railway just a few kilometres from the centre of Montefiascone itself.
This is a fully functional model in 1:87 scale that runs thanks to digital technology: this artisan task saw every detail made entirely by hand and involved almost two years of work.
The model is 20 metres long and is divided (to facilitate transport) into 13 modules 40 cm wide. Model railway enthusiasts will be able to admire this faithful and detailed reproduction of a railway station at first hand.
One last curiosity? Montefiascone Station was inaugurated on 16 August 1886 and this year celebrates 135 years of operations!
