A couple of hours south of Hamburg by car, is this quiet little town called Bad Driburg. Wikipedia calls it a "spa" town, but I'm far more intrigued by what's been built in the old freight shed across the tracks from the railway station.
Inside this unremarkable structure is some rather remarkable work.
A beautifully executed, fully automated model railway, with strong leanings towards prototype modeling.
Many of the locations and at least 2 of the towns modeled are based upon actual locations in the area.
Here's a sampling of some of the work;

And the prototype roundhouse still stands;
If you're ever over there, take the time to visit. In some respects it's more fun than MiniatureWonderland in Hamburg. But that's for another day.
