The World's Largest Model Railroad Adds the World's Largest Model Airport

By Andrew Liszewski on at

With expansions planned all the way to 2020, the world's largest model railroad just opened its latest addition: a 1,600-square-foot model airport, chock full of tiny aircraft support vehicles, hangers, terminals, and passengers.

Originally scheduled to open in 2009, it has taken more than six years to complete the £2,830,000+ expansion to Hamburg's Miniatur Wunderland. The airport includes remote-controlled planes taking, landing and taxiing to terminals and hangers.

Plus, there are luggage carts and other support vehicles scurrying about the tarmac. If you've ever dabbled in model railroads, I recommend taking the time to watch their entire promo video, and then weep over the vastly inferior setup in your rec room. [YouTube via Neatorama]
