The new owner could, however for want of facilities, unfortunately, only in the year you get now has a name: "Everywhere" ( FI = "Jossakin") and was decorated with hundreds of small figures, cars and funny scenes. The 50 passengercars are to some extent filled with small seated figures which make the cars look more real.

However, all buildings and all trains and locomotives are modeled in reality, and correspond exactly to the scale of 1:87. The locomotive and cars were manufactured by renowned manufacturers such as Marklin, Trix, Roco, Fleischmann, Piko, Rivarossi, Jouef, Lionel, and Lima.
