I still cannot get enough of the Miniatur Wunderland layout.
DailyMail’s article gives more details and pictures of the world’s largest model layout.

It comprises of 700 trains with more than 10,000 carriages and wagons. The longest train stands at a staggering 46ft. The scenery includes 900 signals, 2,800 buildings, 4,000 cars and an impressive 160,000 individually designed figures. Nearly four tonnes of steel was used to construct the scenery along with 110st of artificial grass. And the 250,000 lights are rigged up to a system which mimics night and day by automatically turning them on and off. It has taken 500,000 hours and more than £8m to put together.
