Where in the World is TravelGumbo? (#39)

 WITW(39)

Gumbo had fun with last week's puzzle, which featured a railroad station...so he thought: Why not a train, this time? And since the last one was in England, why not try back in the U.S.A.? (sorry, John Lennon...) So, here's Puzzle #39, and good luck to you all!

Ah ha! Either an interesting camera technique or it is indeed a wonderfully detailed model train set, I suspect the latter. Oh, but where?? There are many big boys out there in the world who would love to have a Union Pacific loco running around in the loft. I have seen reports of some fantastic layouts in Germany but it could be anywhere methinks....

 

I tried to take a photo of just such a loco coming towards me in Canada and stood by the track in readiness. Thinking to be friendly, I was just pressing the shutter and gave a wave to the driver. Clearly being equally friendly, the driver gave me a blast on his massive air horns which virtually blew me away!! The resulting photo was all blurr and mainly sky...

Sorry, Mac...but it's not Northlandz.

Sorry, DrF...it's not the National Toy Train Museum

Sorry, JonathanL...it's not the annual display at the Bronx Botanical Garden

 

But you are all in the right country!

Right, time to stick my neck out (again...). I'm going for the picture being part of the world's biggest miniature railroad layout located in Nothlandz, Flemington, New Jersey. I have seen write ups for a large German layout but I think it is nowhere near as big or as complete as this! There PH! Shoot me down my friend!!

PHeymont can be such a tease at times...

 

I'll go out on the limb and suggest these are the "truths"

 

1)  It is a model train set -- very nicely done, by the way

2)  It is in a formal display somewhere.  Mac said "I have seen reports of some fantastic layouts in Germany".  A model trail museum in Europe, possibly Germany?

 

Anyone else have any ideas?
