I was just looking for info to answer Vadim's thread in another forum and I found this:

Apologies if this has been posted before.  I'm more of a railfan than a modeler, I don't know too much about this, but based on what the page says, this is 5-inch gauge, about 1/8.4 scale.  Its length is 2160mm, and it weight 95 kilograms.  It uses 24VDC power.

 

Even more: http://www2s.biglobe.ne.jp/~hidepon/5inch/5inch.html .

Wow! Where can I get one of those?! Oh wait - it'd half fill my apartment, and the postage to Australia would consume my MR budget for the whole year.

I my god that speed!

 

You don't often see these large scale models on 'viaduct' tracks, I believe they usually have a smaller gauge as well. There's one park in the Netherlands that has both:http://www.stoomgroepwest.nl/index.php/nl/fotoalbum/category/19-rijdagen2011

They even have working semaphores and electric signals, railway crossings, signal boxes, a turntable etc.

 

 

A real railway crossing from the Dutch railways:
