    This is pretty cool, can't imagine the time or money that's involved in this!

    It still has a lot of shortcomings but it's pretty neat.

    ???? - facetious? No offense, but it is hard to see the shortcomings there...

    Miniature Wonderland is a successful public layout display and the sophisticated lighting, animations, computer controlled vehicles and the airport, not to mention the sheer scope, put this into a a class unto itself.

    Well, was trying to be vague to avoid a debate, but, if you want to know...
    In the OP video...
    1) Trucks jack rabbit start from 0 to 30mph in .003 seconds
    2) Trucks and buses appear to careen through tight city intersections at high speed, including tight turns without slowing
    3) A tight rope walker with feet encased in globs of hot glue appears to move back and forth on the rope without ever moving her legs.
    4) Trains and cars move but boats don't. It breaks the illusion, especially with the modeled waves.

    Like I said, it's pretty neat. It might even be the best in the world. It still has some problems though. My opinion. YMMV. I guess in my mind, if you go through the trouble of adding animated cars, what's the point if you don't go all the way? It's subjective, I know.

    Edit: Incidentally, the OP was NOT Minatur Wonderlands, so I'm not sure what you're added video has to do with it. Maybe you're confused. Maybe I'm confused. Maybe the world is confused. The world is confusing.

    Beneath OP video, description says Miniature Wonderland... I presumed it was accurate.
    Did not intend to sound argumentative. I was just taken aback and reacted.

    It's been posted before, but it is nice to see it every four years.

    I linked it just so you can see what you or others said the last time.

    Well, it does say that, but then it goes on to say another name like Edge City and something about 100 mini vehicles so I took it to mean it is the same vehicle system used by MW, but on a different layout. You didn't really sound argumentative, BTW, and I hope I didn't either, but I could just see somebody (not you) flailing me for saying his layout wasn't perfect and that I was just too picky so I avoided particulars initially. I would never want to make you mad cause your stuff is so cool. And you are cool, too. Cooly, coolness.

    Thanks for sharing this Greg. That's a cool layout. Guess I can see the confusion as Miniature Wonderland was mentioned as being the first with moving vehicles, although the video was about a different layout.

    Went back several times to reread the video description. It is not very clear but I recognize the scenes from MW.
    The beer garten animation and the lift bridge with the sailing ship are from MW. Not to belabor the subject...
    Not sure why he is using the title ""The City Edge"...

    At any rate...

    I enjoyed the different video perspective and am fascinated by the computer controlled vehicles stopping, starting and using turn indicators in the OP video...
    Granted, the video close-ups of these scenes takes us away from the over-all effect of the larger layout, but these were not meant to be seen close up.

    BTW, just found this new way to explore MW via Google Maps: https://www.google.com/maps/about/be...nd/#navigation

    One of the truck drivers was drinking coffee from a travel mug and the lid was not even on the mug. And I didn't see any steam to indicate that the coffee was even hot.
