Today, Pilentum Television visits the large model railway layout inside the Museum of Hamburg History, Germany. Most people - in the context of Hamburg and model railway - are thinking about the great Miniature Wonderland, the largest model railway of the world. But many years before, a very large model railroad has been built in Hamburg.
This model railroad wants to appear anything but commercial, but to present the railway history of Hamburg in an educational way. It is the 1 gauge railroad layout built by Germany’s first model railroad association in 1949. The origin of this beautiful layout dates back in 1944, when the Director of the Museum of Hamburg History had the idea to establish an exhibition of Hamburg’s railway history.
