Historical Model Railway Exhibition

The historic model railway exhibition is one of the largest in Europe. The giant model illustrating the railways of Hungary, Austria and Germany in the 19th and 21st centuries is an authentic replica of the original station buildings, railway tracks, locomotives and trains.

On the more than 2.7 kilometres long rail network of the model tables, on a floor space of 503 m2, 348 fully automated servomotor, decoder-controlled detours, 75 different old trains assembled from the locomotives, passenger and freight wagons of the previous two centuries run simultaneously at H0 (1:87) scale. The track network of stations was based on aerial photos and original designs. The presentation is made complete by contemporary blueprints and technical descriptions of Hungary's most famous trains.
