Thanks BBB and Rockhead for those links! With all the links within the links it will take me a while to get through all of the information. I'm glad I asked this question well before Christmas!

Thought of you and Mo when I saw this story on Huffington Post. I think Mo will get a thrill out of this video.

Here's the story with the statistics about the world's largest model train set up.

And here's the video.

@Butrflynet,
Wow! That's so cool. I want to go see that!

I'll show this to Mo when he gets up today. He'll love it.

Thank you!

@boomerang,
Here's their website. It includes tour and travel info, photo galleries and behind the scenes technical info and photos.

It is something I would love to see in person too.


Edit: Oooh, they have a gift shop online too. It is German but you can copy the text into Google translate and get the gist of what it says.

Maybe Santa can read German...

Ah, there is an English version. It is way over in the upper right corner of the screen. I had to use the browser slider to move there and find it.

Hamburg. Well, it only opened in May 2011 - now I want to go too!!

Thank you so much for finding this Butrflynet Smile

@Butrflynet,
Jello Lynn, it is your Butt Head Brother lol.

Boy can I still remember the trains you speak of. I would crawl underneath all of the tables to get into the open pits where the controls were located. I must say with a hint of pride that I did indeed cause a few train wrecks in my time there.

Hope you and Mom stay warm these daze, and as always I will keep in touch with you and call.

Remember how you used to powder my butt, when I was a baby?

Looking back I think we should have stopped this after I graduated high school, but hey make fun while the sun shines.

I love you so very much MOM, your the best
