Google lets you explore the world's largest model railway exhibition in Street View

 

Tour the streets and railways of Germany's Miniatur Wunderland.
 
When you think of Google Street View, you'll probably get visions of the company's camera-mounted cars or its colossal Trekker backpacks. The search giant has has sent them to some of the world's most picturesque locations, but for its latest Street View project, things have got a whole lot smaller. With help from a specially-modified model train and bus, Google has captured a 360-degree Street View map of Hamburg's Miniatur Wunderland, the world's largest miniature railway.

Amtrak can be better! Tell your local, state and national elected officials to support a more robust rail system. Join NARP and your local rail advocacy organization.
