  • German Wonderland: Man's skill and imagination at work.

    This is well worth a 4-5 minutes viewing.
    Remember the two brothers, in Germany, who had a wonderful model railway that was something to see?
    This is an update for their German Wonderland.
    There have been little clips about this place for the past few years. It was started by two brothers as a place to show their hobby, it started growing by leaps & bounds.
    Soon they were joined by other 'Model Railroad Clubs' and other craftsmen. Some were electricians, model makers Carpenters, computer programmers.
    Their wives would stop by to see what they were doing and usually bring them a lunch.
    One thing led to another. Three of the ladies had worked at a bakery, several visitors would ask if they had a snack bar. The idea was planted; some of the carpenters came and built a nice restaurant area for the bakery and a kitchen too. If the fresh, Coffee smell didn't get you, then the bakery definitely would. This was about 5 years ago. One of the Breweries came and furnished all of the tables and chairs, serving counter and, etc. Their latest finished area is the airport. Planes look like they are flying and landing.  Remember this is all a model!

There are only two of these track laying machines in the world, one here and one in Europe.
