    Do you know of the guy in Osoyoos British Columbia Canada. He also has an amazing set up all done in European style trains etc. Not as large, but as spectacular. If you know great, if not reply and I will get his name. Thanx, Derek

    Here I thought that Chicago, ILL. had a well detailed layout at there Science + Industry Museum where you can, Witness 30-plus trains run on 1,400 feet of winding track from Seattle to Chicago. Here is were you can see it. http://www.msichicago.org/whatshere/exhibits/ I didn’t see any video of the lay out they do have stills. But I do have to say the lay out in Germany is by far out of this world.
    Thanks Robert

    ive seen the layout in Berlin and even they said the Hamburg layout is bigger. the Berlin layout was simply mesmorizing Berlin layout was a Germany landscape and the airport was amazing

I was going to buy a set to start with untill I read your book. Thanks you saved me a lot of headaches . Your train bud .

    That’s sure going to be on my itinerary if I ever get back to Germany!

    ive seen the layout in Berlin and was there for 3 hours and i didnt want to leave as i was mesmorized. next year 2012 were in Hamburg especially to see this layout in the video. its amazing how much money some people spend on model trains. and a total inspiration

    Last time I checked, the Guiness book of world records listed Northlandz in Flemington, New Jersey, USA as the worlds largest indoor model railroad with over 10,000 feet of HO track. One can easily spend an entire day there. The “fast” tour takes about 3 1/2 hours but you do miss a lot of the details.

    Very Amazing great layout. Stunning scenery and fantastic trains. another layout to check out is called Alpen Rail in Hobart Tasmania. It’s based on the Swiss National Railways Around Mount Eiger and is done in “scale” O guage.

  15. John Gibney says:

    Ive always been a wooden ship builder, but always wanted to get into trains. I had no idea how complex and wonderfull it could be. The setup in the video is beyond discription. I am hooked!

  16. Chris Johnston says:

    Northlandz, in New Jersey, also claims to be the World’s Largest Model Railroad, complete with a little Guiness World Record medallion on their home page.
    But then I went to the Guiness website, and searched for “model railroad”, but came up with “0 Results”!
    Odd, that.
    Soooo, who’s the actual winner here?
