> This is simply unbelievable. The Miniatur Wunderland model railroad in

> Hamburg, Germany is the largest in the world, covering 16,146 square

> feet of space with more than 10,000 train cars running around its 6.8 miles

> of HO scale track. Now, the makers of this huge layout have created a video

> that gives you a jaw-dropping look at the vast scope of this intricate work

> of art.

> Its construction started in 2000, and is still underway, with a tiny airport

> due for completion by the end of this year. This is just the beginning

> — there are plans to double to layout by 2014. We especially like the Las

> Vegas portion, complete with dazzling LEDs lighting up the night.

> You have to watch the new video above to get the full impact of this

> remarkable achievement, which has taken in excess of 500,000 working hours to build. There's good reason why this is Germany's most popular attraction,

> already visited by more than 5 million flabbergasted tourists.
