In this video, we are not the train driver, but a passenger. We look out the window and enjoy the train journey along an incredibly large model railway layout. This model railroad depicts heart of Germany’s coal and steel industry, the so-called Ruhr district. The layout was constructed in HO scale and covers an area of more than 420 square meters. On the layout, there are many well-known buildings of this former industrial region, for example, steelworks, blast furnaces and factories.
