Amazing: Model trains in Germany

Wow! The Miniatur Wunderland model railway in Hamburg claims to be the largest of its kind in the world, with some 10km (6.8 miles) of HO scale track and eight HUNDRED trains!

Building the display started in 2000, and it's still under construction, with a model airport due to be finished by the end of 2009.

The vid gives you a good feel for the full-on amazingness of the project, which has so far taken more than half a million person-hours to build and had more than 5 million visitors.
