Berlin Diorama

Deutsche Version

As a frequent visitor of the German capital, I came up with the idea of making a small non-operational diorama of a typical Berlin railway scene as decoration for my bookshelf. The scene on display has no specific prototype but resembles the area around the S-Bahn station Warschauer Strasse, which is a wellknown railfan spot. With a closed and boarded up signal tower of the typical Berlin architecture, elevated district heating pipes from the old East German times, and current Wildstyle graffiti, the layout provides the typical Berlin railway athmosphere of the early 21th century on a footprint of just 30 x 15 cm (11.9 x 6.0 inches).

This diorama also provides a nice photo background for modern equipment.

For the graffiti, I used products from www.modellbahnaufkleber.de, which were developed with advice from real scene folks.
