The Biviglio station is made up of three modules of 120 x 80 cm (48*32”), by Beppe Ravasio and Marco Ponzoni. Buildings are entirely scratchbuilt, and the station features a fully detailed interior, and a working clock. Also noteworthy is the piling, with the beautiful portals. A self-built system for the circulation of vehicles and buses is integrated in the modules; see also the stop with shelters, also scratchbuilt.

This module represents a city environment, with buildings, a basketball court and a skateboard track. It has deliberately remained unfurnished in memory of its executor, Francesco, who unfortunately passed away in 2012. The same module was transformed later by Beppe Ravasio into an operating car wash/service station, on top of a lively night club.

The two modules by Franco Bonomi, which form a single diorama, offer a glimpse of the Ligurian Riviera. Note the great scenic realism that Franco manages to give to his settings, with all the bridges and buidings, including the buildings, completely scratchbuilt. The modules are now part of the permanent H0 layout in the GFO headquarters.

The last diorama, also made up of two 120x60 cm (4x2’) modules, was built by Erli Pievani. It represents a small station, with a siding serving a sawmill, with a shelter for the sawmill switcher. The two modules were built to be integrated into the FS area of the model of the Ferrovia Valle Seriana layout, before it was moved to the GFO headquarters.
