Model railway layout at Frankfurt Central Station

Model railway layout at Frankfurt Central Station, Germany

In several German railway stations, there are model railway layouts where children (and their parents) can play with after putting in a 1 Euro coin. The layouts are pretty large and offer a lot of interesting details. Do you know similar layouts in your city and would you spend a Euro for having such fun?
