    Mallard train World’s fastest steam locomotive

    August 29, 2019

    And this is the world-famous Mallard
    fastest steam engine in the world. It still holds the record. On the 3rd of July 1938 the
    Mallard broke the world speed record by travelling at 126 miles per hour its 203
    km/h on a slightly downward grade of line just south of Grantham. And this record
    is remarkable in that it still stands today this is the fastest steam engine
    on earth Okay this is the test equipment they used
    on the record breaking run. Look at that. That’s real em… Steampunk
    but this is real, that is the real deal. Look at the carriage. How beautiful it is. Beautiful. Every little detail just so carefully thought about. So it just didn’t function. It looked great as well. Bizarre! These days we’re kind of er, very utilitarian. It says there. Dynamometer

    Miniatur Wunderland: Largest model train set – Meet The Record Breakers

    August 21, 2019

    Besuche die Rekordbrecher Europa Hamburg, Deutschland Größte Modelleisenbahn Hallo ich bin Gerrit ich bin einer der Gründer vom Miniatur Wunderland und wir befinden uns jetzt hier in unserem großen Schweiz A bschnitt. Wir haben hier im Miniatur Wunderland annähernd 1300 Züge, wir haben tausende Autos, davon fahren 300. Wir haben 60 Flugzeuge und wir haben verschiedene Länder. Wir haben angefangen mit Deutschland, dann sind wir weitergegangen nach USA, Skandinavien, Dänemark, Norwegen, Schweden, ein Teil von Finnland, sind dann weiter hier über die Schweiz, einen großen Flughafen, jetzt nach Italien gewandert und aktuell bauen wir an Venedig und demnächst kommen Monaco und Frankreich dran. Venedig hat fast zwei Jahre gedauert zu bauen. Wir haben ganz viele Sehenswürdigkeiten von Venedig uns natürlich genommen. Wir haben hier die Rialto Brücke. Wir haben hier den Markusplatz. Wir haben Karneval in Venedig dort hinten. Und wir haben wirklich versucht diese bombastischen Sehenswürdigkeiten von Venedig und diese Vielfalt auf diesen paar Quadratmetern darzustellen. Etwas, dass ich zurzeit in Venedig sehr mag sind die Kunstwerke der Kunstausstellung Venedig. Im Gegensatz zu unseren anderen Bauabschnitten ist Venedig sehr detailliert. Alles andere ist auch sehr detailliert, aber in Venedig ist jede Ecke ausgeschmückt. Alles soll zu 100% perfekt sein. Also die schwierigste Region für uns zu bauen hier war modellbautechnisch Venedig, weil da wirklich jedes im Detail nachgebaut werden muss. Und technisch war es der Flughafen, weil die Flugzeuge zum Starten und Landen zu bringen und diesen ganzen Verkehr auf dem Vorfeld so realistisch hinzubekommen war fünf Jahre lang eine große Herausforderung. Wenn ich einen Blick auf die Anlage werfen will, bevorzuge ich den Flughafen. Es ist großartig zu sehen, wie die Flugzeuge starten und wie alles funktioniert. Ja, das ist der Ort, an dem ich die meiste Zeit verbringe. Der Flughafen ist eins, der komplizierten Systeme, die wir haben. Es wird von drei Computern aus gesteuert, da ist also viel Technik hinter der Anlage. Solange hier alles reibungslos funktioniert, fliegen wir pünktlich. In Knuffingen ist die größte Ladestationen, die wir haben im Miniatur Wunderland, weil die Ladestation hier lädt die Autos vom Airport, sowie auch von Knuffingen. Es ist so, dass die Autos immer selbstständig in die Ladestation fahren. Das System erkennt quasi: Ein Auto wird langsamer, weil der Akku zum Beispiel schwächer wird und dann muss ich es in die Ladestation schicken. Das Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg hält den Guinness Welt Rekord für die größte Modelleisenbahn, mit einer Länge von 15.400 Meter. Wir haben als Kinder viel mit der Modelleisenbahn gespielt, aber wir haben eigentlich erst auf dem Fußboden aufgebaut, dann Unfälle gebaut und dann hat unsere Mutter gesagt wir sollen es wieder abreißen und dann irgendwann verschwand dieses Hobby, aber ist schlummerte anscheinend noch in uns drin, denn irgendwann kam die Idee wieder hoch und dann waren wir sofort infiziert von der Idee loszulegen, mit dem Deutschlandabschnitt und die größte Modelleisenbahn der Welt zu bauen. Um den Guinness Welt Rekord für die größte Modelleisenbahn zu feiern, hat das Miniatur Wunderland eine Figur der Rekordjurorin gebaut, um ihren großen Rekord in einem kleinem Weg zu feiern.

    Miniatur Wunderland *** official video *** largest model railway / railroad of the world

    August 17, 2019

    For 10 years now, the world’s largest model railway can be found in Hamburg’s historic warehouse district – a mammoth miniature project. It took 500.000 working hours to create this incredible miniature world on 1.300m². The city’s most popular tourist attraction fascinates over one million people a year. And it’s continually growing! Eight different sections, connected by 13 km of track installation, provide an unforgettable experience for all ages. Tons of steel, wood and plaster form the foundation of this extraordinary exhibition. The journey leads through Scandinavia to Germany, from Austria to Switzerland and far away to America in just a few moments. Each day, 900 trains with 12.000 wagons travel a distance of several hundred kilometres. The longest train is 14.51 metres long. On the North East Sea, with a water capacity of 30.000 litres, large and small ships are cruising. In Scandinavia, America, at the airport and in the cosy fictional town of Knuffingen, 250 computer-controlled vehicles are on the move. Special attractions are the fire runs, controlled by a sophisticated software. The fire brigades are constantly engaged in fire fighting procedures. But the police are also busy tracking down traffic offenders. The newest attraction of the Miniatur Wunderland is the “Knuffingen Airport”. After six years of development and a cost of 3.5 million Euro, the world’s probably smallest commercial airport opened in May 2011 On 150 square metres, with more than 40 airplanes and the ground staff that goes with it, it may be the world’s most advanced flight simulation. From the technology hangar to the air terminal every little detail has been faithfully recreated. Without a doubt, the attention to detail is at the heart of the layout. Over 200.000 figures show life in all its facets. It’s a world where the law chases criminals and where some don’t really care. Where the fire department puts out a large fire and a new fire starts not too far away. Funeral oration or celebration, Eat or be eaten, Travelers from this or another world, Imagination knows no bounds in the the Wunderland. There are fire-breathers, travelling animals and surprisingly strong girls – in a world alternating between hectic and peaceful, between wild animals – and some that were already tamed, there are hunters – and some just hunting for the best pictures, there are holy sanctuaries, and some not quite so holy, there are people bursting with life, and some not so much… The Wunderland is absolutely diverse and unique. Travel from the highest mountain with over six meters… over dreamy streets to the Grand Canyon… snow-covered landscapes… through idyllic villages to below the surface of the earth. In the Miniatur Wunderland, a day lasts 15 minutes. At dusk, over 300.000 LEDs ensure that the layout shines in a captivating light. Then, the night life of the various regions really becomes visible. And amidst all this, more hidden stories emerge at the push of a button. There are over 200 push-button actions spread across the edge of the layout, where the visitors can actively participate in various forms. For example, in a sweet way, at the chocolate factory, or in the daily struggle with the pitfalls of technology, or in the creation of life, or with a bit too much craftsmanship. The technology behind it all is monitored by human eyes from a control console and with the help of more than 40 computers. These are controlled by a complex, self-developed software. The Miniatur Wunderland is internationally well known through more than 1.000 TV-Reports The 260 people on the Wunderland team are never short on new ideas. Until 2020, there will be new sections covering France, Italy, England and parts of Africa… and who knows what’s next. But there’s no end in sight. To convey this marvel in five minutes – impossible! Just come by and see for yourself. You will be amazed!

    NEW RECORD!!! WELL OVER 150 RATS Caught by My Mink and Dogs!!!

    August 13, 2019

    today was a record-breaking day like
    record shattering like blow it out of the water oh my gosh my name is Joseph
    Carter and I am the minke man when I was a senior in high school I started
    learning about the American mink I was told that mink were horrible vicious
    little animals who were impossible to tame challenge accepted
    I’ve been in love with me ever since I get mean from fur farms and give them a
    new life in this new life my mink live as naturally as possible even hunting
    for their dinner the way a wild mink would so come join me on my adventures
    as we learn more about this intense little predator amazing American mink
    now if you’re really wanting to dive into mink and learn the nitty-gritty
    details I would strongly recommend you read my book the new sport of mink
    Andrey if you would like to support us you can buy a shirt or hat or consider
    becoming one of my faithful patrons just go to the links in the description below people often ask me why I prefer to use
    greyhound mixes over terriers that is why I prefer to use greyhound mixes no
    matter how fast their short little legs run no terrier can quickly cover ground
    like a long-legged lurcher that fast black dog is my boss and he’s
    what’s called a bull lurcher he is one-quarter pit bull three-eighths
    greyhounds and three-eighths whipping any dog crossed with the greyhound er
    whippet is termed in lurcher the advantage of using a bowl archer like
    boss is the pit bull helps give him some of the toughness and drive of a terrier
    and also some of the speed of the greyhound this little white dog named Neela is a
    Jack Russell terrier owned by my buddy Matthew he has his own channel called
    Matthews mink Manor we keep Neal on the leash most of the time because she likes
    to dive under the cement when she sees a rat we don’t want to have an accident if
    the cement unexpectedly slipped off the tractor oh just get dogs good girl in the last
    good great there’s just one more that’s still alive back down good girl Neela drop it drop us bus bus the point of your brindle dog is my
    little puppy shurni she’s a Dutch Shepherd and she’s just here to watch
    the older dogs in action she’s only five months old in his far too young to be
    catching rats herself good girl yes yes good girl bucket yes good girl another
    one bucket yes bucket bucket yes good girl bucket bucket yes yes yes yes yes there’s a few
    I don’t know where to go good job Neela Connie was jumping through the air out
    drop out struck out girl good dog okay go ahead summer anything under their players once we
    tried to avoid the rats suffering whenever possible and put them down as
    quickly as we can contrary to what some people would think
    using mink and dogs for pest control is far more humane than the commonly used
    modern methods the squeaks of rats disturb some people but the same people
    take no thought whatsoever for the hours of torment suffered by a poisoned rat
    dying down in its burrow where nobody can see or hear good kupuna gosh oh there’s a bunch right there good job
    Neela good job boss good girl Neela good jobs Oh boss
    no come here come here good boy come here it’s good boy get down Warda cops
    it dogs you’re going under the hay down to the next one yeah your girl
    yes speaker oh please Ganguly okay pretty good start to today huh
    as we continue along moving sections of cement the escaping rats move on to the
    next section eventually congregating in large enough
    numbers that it’s helpful if we start using the mink along with the dogs yeah
    we need to start doing me oh my gosh in order to be as efficient and safe as
    possible we prop the cement up with a railroad
    tie so there’s no risk of it slipping off the tractor we then release the mink
    under the gap created the mink enters the gap and begins catching rats the
    rats who try to escape the mink run into the dogs waiting outside
    typically the mink flushes the rats in a slower and more orderly fashion than
    just lifting the cement with the tractor wood giving the dogs more time to catch
    the fleeing rats yeah good boy yeah good boy this make
    his name spot because he has a little white spot on his chin just like his
    father Rocky he’s a fearless hunter but I like his
    father he’s quite large and so has some obvious difficulty squeezing into tight
    little places good job I’m sorry a job spawn
    good boys get alcohol I ran a good boy we have a but Alfie okay move the
    cameras back good job good job
    there’s one good jobs new watch stop boy boss boy
    boss oh you didn’t bite me I just grabbed
    Kate alive oh my gosh how did I do that you may
    wonder why we lift the cement for their mink instead of just letting them
    squeeze down the rat holes a bunch of rats will sometimes bottle up in the
    dead enemy and the meat wat to sit down there killing them one by one
    which is quite time-consuming when dealing with large numbers of rats it’s
    quite helpful to use the much larger and more powerful buck minigame
    the buck creeks are so large that they typically can’t fit down the Brat
    burrows and so only dummies are embarrassed if we don’t want the cement got okay oh yeah yeah yeah fuck Neil Neil Neil I got one Oh give us good job Neela oh there’s so
    many oh these are all the lies look these are all alive smart leave any next bus bus business good job Neela yeah yeah yeah yeah here let me chase one over there here
    drop this was a really holy no bites none ever does like people
    often wonder about the disease risks involved with catching rats most of the
    diseases people worry about either aren’t typically found in my area or
    aren’t carried by rats at all hantavirus is only carried by a very small handful
    of specific rodent species the deer mouse being the only one in my area the
    plague is not typically carried by the brown rat but is instead carried by the
    black rat which doesn’t live here either rabies is almost never carried by any
    small to medium-sized rodent rats included girl nila leptospirosis or Wiley’s
    disease though very common in wet areas with mild winters is almost unheard of
    here in the high desert of Utah with that being said there’s always
    going to be some risk of disease so my animals and I stay up-to-date on all
    available vaccinations you may wonder what we do at the end of the day with
    over a hundred dead rats and the answer is we either turn it into mink food or
    if possible we sell them to people with pet snakes good job there heads not near
    big enough to be very good job spot back at home my mink are kept in much larger
    and more spacious enclosures they get all kinds of enrichment like branches to
    climb on and pools to swim in and this is just our little transportation method
    for transporting a whole bunch of mink at once good girl good girl this is real yep a real shoes are in
    case we need something I can squeeze in a lot of places yeah pop your bus hey Raven hey Johnny what they told me
    was nice car good job Neela yeah good girl any luck yeah here job Oh this yellow dog is a one-year-old
    Greyhound named Lily Lily is plenty old enough to start hunting but she hasn’t
    mentally matured enough to take any interest yet we brought her along hoping
    that watching the other dogs having fun would eventually make her want to give
    it a try glad I’m wearing gloves I’d like to get
    bitch scared a second there you go no she’s getting them up oh she’s she being sucked good job Mysterio
    did you visit oh the queue mystery oh she got it out good job oh my gosh just goes to show they can start outside
    doesn’t mean they’re gonna be so this is the supplement week out of the bunch good job me lush good look oh good girl the mingkun dogs work as a
    team to help eradicate the rat infestation the dogs understand that the
    mink are an important part of their pack and that they must respect them at all
    times unfortunately not all of the mink
    understand this and some of the more aggressive ones try and bite their dogs
    to do their best to avoid the teeth of their feisty little hunting
    Connecticut’s good girl hiki sky you did an excellent
    job I did one is still there baby okay Johnny here being such good moral
    support she’s the cheerleader are you to dodge Geneva Tierney’s do such a good job to use to
    get used to the retriever you do be cheaper can you reach each direction

    foster mother see this one’s actually old enough it’s already can be waned
    he’s fine we’ll just give him soft food but like these little guys they’re
    borderline they need a mother to nurse on and it looks like this is a this one
    this one’s old enough to wean but these little guys in they need a mother oh my
    goodness today was a record-breaking day like
    record shattering like blow it out of the water I cannot believe the luck that
    we had today oh my goodness so happy so Dominque did awesome jobs man they were
