In the model railway show there is a very spezial highlight in hall F: USA from East to West. The footprint of this facility occupies the entire hall F, which haf a length of 65 meters, a width of 25 meters and an area of 1,625 square meters. As the garden size train scale 1:22,5 elected, since the construction of the Brockenbahn initial views were impressive, as the vehicles of the Nuremberg firm LGB in view of the chosen topiy may be considered.
Since the model landscape is in some places a height of up to 7 meters, vehicles must be clearly visible before such a huge backdrop still and especially the enormous differences in elevation cope, that thes land once owned are now. In the range of LGB is everything, that a US-installation needs: From the old, magnificent Moghul-Schlepptenderlok of the rail company "Denver & Rio Grande Railroad" to the joint macinery of the "Uintah Railway".

To create the eventful, magnificent landscapes of North America with its railways, the substructure of the installation was made of ytong-stones, whereby the respective terrain topography, the mountains, the gorges and the loops of the railway lines were considered equal. The guest can go in the mysterious interior of the Rocky's and go in the interior of an old gold mine or discover so one or other spiders on the walls. But beware!

While the men have this kind of advenutre, the women can see an exhibiton of precious and semiprecious stones of this world at the foot of the mountains.
