Also happening here in Phoenix... or happened. It was supposed to take place this last week but I can't seem to find out if it took place or not. The Worlds Longest Model Train Also, this is the layout which it should have taken place at... Rick The Railroad Guy Gallery Directly from their site, "HISTORY 11 Years ago the record for the Worlds Longest Model Train was held by a railroad club in Perth, Australia in HO Scale at 3.8 scale miles and consisted of 650 HO scale wagons and 4 locomotives. This record was set June 3, 1996. The record, we understand has since moved to Germany, but also in HO scale . WHERE To our knowledge the record has never been attempted in G Scale. The railroad we plan to run it on is the Dynamite, Rio Verde & Eastern Railroad in Scottsdale, AZ which has 3,800 linear feet of track on a double track main, with each main at 1,252 linear feet. Utilizing all 1,252 feet on one main will be 6.91 scale miles and would beat the German record by 2.1 scale miles. WHEN The time frame for this record attempt will be the week prior to the National Garden Railway Convention in Phoenix. We anticipate the week of April 20 – 26, 2008. We will update the web site as the time draws nearer with further information. HOW In order to beat the current record we will need 75 sets of USA Trains Intermodal 5 Unit Articulated Well Cars, which would be out of our budget, but with your help, we can all band together and bring the record to the US!"
