The largest model railway in the world November 11, 2006

There’s modest ambition, ambition, and then there’s completely mental, over the top, super-duper ambition. These guys are making a model railway that is not just big, it’s absolutely gigantic. They aim to have over 1,000 trains running, all computer controlled and audience interactive as well. 250,000 lamps allow a full day to be simulated in just 15 minutes, and the 10Km of track (which is an awful lot at 1:87 scale) is still growing. I would actually like to go and see this just to experience it’s scale – still an Internet visit is the next best thing.
