    With eight miles of track, it's billed as the world's longest model railroad layout.
  2. The reporter said they have spent $12,000 building the layout. If someone can confirm that wasn't an error, I may have to start ordering all my model rr supplies from Germanysign1

    If I remember correctly from reading about this layout in Model Railroader a few years ago, the price tag is more like $1.2 million.

    Seems to me that the article said they ordered another $200,000 worth of parts. Appears to me that the 1.2 million is more accurate.

    Sticker shock for those not in the hobby.. you paid what??? for this. I couldn't buy enough furniture to fill one floor of a warehouse for 12,000 4k would get me maybe 4 rooms.

    Stunning work though. Could take a bit to clean the track though hehe.
