Here's the world's largest model railway. The time, imagery, and detail involved in creating such a masterpiece is truly remarkable.

Very cool. I wish I had the patience to create, well, anything. I will NEVER have that kind of dedication.

Charles, your dedication is totality used up in your search for undying love.

The automation of the vehicles is really neat.

Here's some details about the exhibit, expounding its sheer size and intricacy-

It took 500,000 working hours to build, going from Norway, Denmark, and Sweden to North America, through Germany, Austria, and Switzerland—complete with the Grand Canyon, 20-foot tall Swiss mountains, and:

• 800 trains.
• Over 10,000 train cars in total, running several hundred kilometers every day.
• One train is 47.5 feet long.
• Over 170 computer controlled cars.
• More than 200,000 people (there's all kinds of things here, even a crime scene).
• Controlled by 40 computers.
• 200 cameras control the premises.
• Day and night lighting simulator.
• 300,000 computer-controlled LEDs

Apparently the Scandinavian part also has a 4 ft. long ship floating in a "fjord".

In the words of a girl I once regretfully knew:
