A model amusement park, complete with spinning rides and flashing lights, stands at the LOXX miniature train landscape at the Alexa shopping mall in Berlin. The LOXX landscape recreates in 1:87 scale landmarks of central Berlin as well as a myriad of often humorous little scenes of everyday life. According to a company employee the landscape contains 200,000 lights, 90,000 human figures and a model airport and has 150 trains running at any one time. It also has colored ceiling lights that dim and change to imitate twilight, nighttime and dawn as well as sound effects to imitate an occasional thunderstorm.
