Miniature Wonderland

இன்னும் சில நாட்களில் நாம் புரட்டாசி மாதத்திற்குச் செல்லப்போகிறோம். கொலு வைத்து அழகு பார்க்கும் அணியினர்களுக்கு ஒரு நற்செய்தி. இங்கு செல்லுங்கள். உலகை ரசியிங்கள்.

Miniature Wonderland is a model railway attraction in Hamburg, Germany and the largest of its kind in the world. As of January 2008, the railway consists of 11,000 meters (36,089 ft) of track in HO Scale, divided into five sections: Southern Germany, Hamburg and the coast America, Scandinavia and Switzerland. Of the 4,000 square meters (43,056 sq ft) of floorspace, the model takes 1,500 m2 (16,146 sq ft).
By 2014 the exhibit is due to double the number of sections to ten; the next section covering an airport is due to open in 2010. The exhibit includes 900 trains made up of 12,000 carriages; 300,000 lights, 200,000 trees and 200,000 human figures. The creators promise that the railroad will show small models of France, Italy and the UK.
The construction of the first part started in December 2000 and the first three parts were completed in August 2001. The project was created by two brothers Frederik and Gerrit Braun. Many visitors show up early in the morning and leave in the very last minute, only to come back next morning. Miniatur Wunderland cannot be explored in a couple of minutes. Therefore, it is virtually impossible to show you Wunderland in a 4 minute movie, but we can at least give your some impressions:
