Railway model of Līvbērze and Spāre stations (1:87)

Railway modelling fascinates both young and old. Built during the 1980s and 1990s by the project author and work supervisor Alvils Kraulis and long-term employee of the museum Alfrēds Straume, who crafted the buildings, the model can now be found at the museum. The model shows two stations of the Moscow-Zilupe-Ventspils railway line with their characteristic buildings and landscape. It is built to the most popular scale in the world, the HO scale (1:87), and exemplifies the core principles of operating a railway line in the 1960s.

The model is one of the most exciting objects at the museum, attracting all visitors. It is used for demonstrations of trainsets from various periods: both steam and diesel locomotives and electric and diesel trains.
