Miniatur Wunderland: World's Longest Model Train
Miniatur Wunderland: World's Longest Model Train

What’s believed to be the longest model railway in the world is being built by twin brothers Frederick and Gerrit Braun in the German city of Hamburg.

With about 10km of track, the 700 toy trains can take a scenic route through scale models of parts of America, Scandinavia and even the Swiss Alps.

By the time it's finished in 2014, the railway is expected to be twice as long and will take in France, Italy and the UK.
The brothers started on their Miniatur Wunderland project in 2000 and, so far, it's cost a staggering $11.5 million!

    One cannot simply judge another rights based on their gender. Y'know never know, some women can be stronger than the typical man. I just scrolled through the recent posts, and as Teh_Skittlez mentioned, (using the example of the construction worker) that if a woman can lift as much as the average man, I see no problem with that. This applies to other careers as well. 0-0 My main point is to keep the society equal- not snap out your opinion the minute you realise that person's gender. As many people have mentioned, equality for everyone. :D
