A unique exhibition of .62 miles of train tracks with miniature trains, villages, towns, landscapes and train yards of Europe opened at the First Station, the recently renovated Jerusalem train area, early this August.

This is the first time a miniature train exhibition has been held in Israel, and train enthusiasts of all ages will marvel at the way this has been created.

Forty trains from a wide variety of historical areas, starting prior to World War I, and up to today, pass through towns of all sizes, and by parks, restaurants, public buildings, industrial areas, highways, roads, tunnels, rivers and even an amusement park in various countries of Europe. Cars on highways and miniature people are also part of the modular exhibition.

Collectors of rare models loaned their trains to Israel for this special exhibit, and members of the Jerusalem Train Club participated in the preparations.

Train World 2013 will continue for several and can be viewed by purchasing a ticket outside the large exhibition area.
