size is impressing. but i really don't like how fast they run their trains. also landscape looks too toylike in my opinion.

as far as i know there's a larger one in berlin.

I think they're modeling those high-speed euro trains.

Just adding more to it: the trucks and cars running on the streets are computer controled ,the comp senses the low voltage and steers the vehicle into a charging bay which releases the vehicle after charging into real world like traffic! The computer software is written and designed on the spot(for the whole layout :lights ,day/night time special effects train/car and also a river with barges and boats will be added)

Here is 'another' 'Largest Train Display In the World' : EnterTrainment Junction


Video: EnterTrainment Video




I'm not sure who gets to declare the holder of the title..., although this is a newly opened one that is still undergoing continuous improvements. It is huge, very well done, and models American 1800's thru present day, and all done in large scale. That being said, at least for now, it does not have nearly the 'whistles and bells' of the lighting and animations that the one in Shad's video boasts. Maybe someday...

It is just north of Cincinnati.

Shad

Thanks for the video link.

No one else has commented on the video system so I will. Note how the video appears to move seamlessly from room to room. It would appear there is either a trackway video or else the video camera is supported on cables that allow the camera to move along. Whatever system used, it makes for a very impressive video.
