RAILWAY WORLD AND SOUTH TYROL IN MINIATURE
MODEL TRAINS AND MINIATURE LANDSCAPES IN THE RAILWAY WORLD IN RABLAND NEAR MERANO
The Railway World in Rabland near Merano with its 20.000 model trains is Italy’s biggest model railway layout. Besides this fascinating private collection, the whole of South Tyrol and its attractions can be admired in the wonderful miniature landscape on a scale of 1:87 (H0). The regular day-night presentation with its man lights and special effects creates a unique atmosphere in the Railway World. The kids’ corner offers plenty of fun for the younger visitors. Here they can control a train and get interested in the subject in a playful way.
HISTORY OF THE RAILWAY WORLD
It was in 2004 when a longstanding South Tyrol visitor had the idea to make his extensive model train collection available to the public. This idea inspired the association Friends of Model Trains and was subsequently the beginning of the Railway World with the miniature landscapes of South Tyrol and the fantasy landscape “Uplands“. The Railway World opened its gates in summer 2009.
