    Go to YouTube and type " LARGEST MODEL RAILWAY OF RUSSIA IN MINIATURE " i don't go in for those over scenic-ed MRRs with goofy, candy coated trains with ferris wheels and slot cars, different scales within, or those cutesy Santa's village scenes, et al. I am proto Ops. proto trackage, point to point, no roundy round or even continual, school; pure US steam, diesel or traction. Think Bill Darnaby, less is more. At first I thought this was going to be one of those ' no one knows what they're doing ! ' videos; all wrong goobly gock... BUt, this is REALLY something unexpected !! And in freezing, poor society, what's a hobby ?, Russia ....Gotta see this !! It's not my dream. But it's just plain unusually different..the enormity of the project....

    Amazing. Actually Russia isn't all as back woods and poor as so many think. In fact it's considered in the top ten places for ex-patriots to retire.

    Pretty incredible. Russia is not where I would expect to find something on this scale but then I know so little about the place. I'm especially impressed with the cars and trucks moving properly along the roadways. I differ from Mark in that I can enjoy a whimsical railroad as well as the more prototypical stuff but truly enjoy seeing models like this. Thanks for the link to it.
