During the next days this huge ship can be watched in the wharf of Blohm & Voss opposite the Landungsbrücken (there is, however, no chance to access it).

Remodelling of the AOL arena...

...since the roadies don't even know yet for which artist they have to set up the stage ;-)

The track-sections for the next world record

And now the reason for this report being late - it is ready since early Tuesday and waited to be published:

The track-sections for the next world record

These stacks of track assemblies piled up in our shops during the last days. Even if some guests nodded when they heard that we build subroadbeds for a new layout section, some reactions clearly showed that they didn't really believe us ;-)

The track-sections for the next world record

As rumour had it, we indeeed are preparing for a new world record but had to clarify a couple of things beforehand until we were able to publish details.

Odometer reading of a truck

And finally, we have a highlight for CarSystem - fans: The CarSystem database has a nwe feature! From now on the actual odometer readings of the day can be seen being updated every evening at 18:30 hrs! The data are automatically transferred from the Miniatur Wunderland to our webserver and updated in the CarSystem database.
