Otto went on to create the world's greatest model railway for the New York World Fair in 1964. This display was later exhibited at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu before mocing to a permanent home in Ireland in 1996. Otto describes his achievement in considerable detail, naming manufacturers, suppliers and assistants, and providing in some cases step-by-step instructions of construction and adaptation. An absolute must for the railway modeller, and a rare survival."
