Odd modelling ideas #666 – A challenging prototype?

The Daily Telegraph came up with a fascinating set of photos of life in North Korea, that included a few of the railways.  It’s an interesting modelling challenge, with little prototype information to go on – I suspect Chinese prototypes would be near the mark.  A couple of sample picture follow…..




North Korea has some 5,200 kilometres of railways mostly in standard gauge which carry 80% of annual passenger traffic and 86% of freight, but electricity shortages undermine their efficiency

One advantage of modelling North Korean towns is that, often just like our model railways, the are few cars on the road as no-one can afford them.
