    That is pretty cool. Would love to see it in person. I especially thought that the car with the speed control camera flashing and the dead body in the river were especially funny...

    Somehow I think for the kind of person who would want to work there, just being there is reward enough. ;)

    Pff, I'd be impressed if it were O scale. :rolleyes:








    I'm kidding. I loved the penguins on vacation, among other things (like the hundreds of cars and trucks moving around). This makes my layout look like some two-bit hack made it.

    Actually, compared to these guys, I am a two-bit hack. :p

    Am I the only one who thought, "What, is it just slightly smaller than a real train?"

    Nope, I thought the same. By "Most Gigantic Model Railroad" I thought it meant, the biggest railroad cars.

    Well, I'm definitely adding Hamburg to my list of places to visit! :)

    I love the automation of all the cars, ships, and planes. Much more detail and work than a lot of other major layouts.

    if all the people were moving about randomly say shopping etc, I'd be blown to smitherscreens

    This is really impressive though, I used to like these as a kid.
