This book, containing 96 pages and more than 150 photos, is about Mr. Hans-Peter Porsche s very large model train layout. He is the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche, the automobile designer of the famous Volkswagen Beetle. Since his childhood, Hans-Peter Porsche collected tin toys from Marklin. A few years ago, he decided to present his collection of toys to the public in a special museum. This museum is called Traumwerk Porsche in the German language, meaning Dreamworks Porsche in the English language. In addition to the toy collection area, there is a large event hall for Porsche cars and a very large model railroad display with HO scale model trains in action. Tracks and trains are made by Marklin. Outside, there is also a railroad and a playground for children. Porsches Dreamworks Model Railway Museum is lo-cated in the South of Germany in the town, called Anger-Aufham. The large model railway layout has got an exhibition area of more than 400 square meters and represents the three countries Austria, Switzerland and Germany. When it gets night on Mr. Porsches model railway layout a special laser light show will begin: Every 17 minutes the day changes into the night. At this mo-ment, a beautiful light show is presented, which the world has not yet seen. It is a unique and amazing mixture of classic railroad model building and modern computer animation through a 360 degree video beamer panorama. There are more than 20 laser video beamers spotting buildings and bridges on the layout.
