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!

    Post in this thread in this thread when you change your profile pic and you want people to notice it . You can also explain what your 'new' profile pic or 'old' profile pic is about, or WHY you changed it. I changed mine... it's been awhile since I changed mine... I'm gonna change it back when Bea comes back :) ( Bea Burns, Arthas, Lady Jaina Proudmoore, Arctic, Bea the Blond, Burn, Arcticburn, Arcticburn21) :) Arcticy changes her profile pic a lot.. check my wall of fame for proof!  My new one is a picture of lights! :) NOT ME! I'm not gonna upload a picture of myself when I'm 13... which is in a year :) exactly 359 days! :D  i wonder if people will recognize me. I usually look at people's profile pics, unless it's Bea. Though, they know my forum signature! LIGHTS! Love her! :)
