World's biggest train set present by Twin brothers

Posted on 12:08 PM by Sameer Shah

It looks like night has fallen at a busy train station.

Row upon row of carriages wait for the passengers who mill about on platforms or buying last-minute snacks at kiosks.

But this is actually just part of the world's biggest train set which twin brothers have worked on for nine years and spent ?8million on.

The 'Miniatur Wunderland' has six regions including America, Switzerland, Scandinavia, Germany and the Austrian Alps.

In the U.S. section you'll find intricate models of the Rocky Mountains, the Everglades, Cape Canaveral and the Grand Canyon.

While in Switzerland the mighty Matterhorn mountain rises 6m from the set.

Twin brothers Gerrit and Frederik Braun, 41, from Hamburg decided to make the model so lifelike that they even added 4,000 moving cars, 160,000 figures as well as other forms of transport.

A music festival in Switzerland is also shown as well as police carrying out an arrest.

The Gerrit brothers say their project is yet unfinished and are aiming to complete their masterpiece by 2014.

'It isn't just a model, but a world that invites visitors to dream,' Frederick said.

His brother Gerrit added: 'Our idea was to build a world that men, woman, and children can be equally astonished and amazed in.

'One of our fundamentals has always been to meet every challenge, no matter how hopeless it seems to be in the beginning.

'With this attitude we managed to create technology which amaze our visitors.'

Stretching for a staggering six miles the track winds its way around some of the world's most famous landmarks, from the mountains of Switzerland to the hotels and casinos of Las Vegas.
'And the world continues growing. In Wunderland you can experience in only a few hours many days and nights in different regions of this earth.

'It isn't just a model railway, but a world which invites the visitors in different ways to dream and discover.

"It reflects a diversity of opinion and enables the observer to regard parts of our world from a totally different perspective.'

The Miniatur Wunderland is located next to the River Elbe in the Speicherstadt area of Hamburg, Germany.
