Exciting and very natural model railway, it covers several different rooms/landscapes, where the trains travel between the different rooms. Very interesting for both young and old kids.

When visiting the Miniature Railroad museum, I suddenly had a flashback to my kid days of playing with miniature trains and building landscapes for them. Great for kids of all ages!
