Model Railways 

This page showcase’s some of the Model Railways in our collection, some of which can be seen in our office window in Przemyśl, together with a working H0 Railway. Most of the models represent German railways, including models from the former East Germany (DDR). Model Railways is a hobby for all ages and is highly recommended.

A Piko (DDR) model of the CSD Railways Skoda ES 499. This model was purchaced by myself in the 1980’s from the M 26 Model shop in Liège Belguim . It saw some service on my model railway at the time, and then was stored until a few months ago. It has now been fitted with full DCC sound and recently was seen running at the Model Railway show here in Przemyśl, pulling DDR made coaches. Not bad for a model made over 30 years ago. It still has it’s original box and paper work.
