A museum featuring a vast collection of works by Nobutaro Hara, known for his meticulously created models of trains from around the world, held a private viewing Wednesday ahead of its July 10 opening.

The recently completed museum, named after the 93-year-old model maker, is located inside a building in Yokohama, home of Japan’s first railroad. The 1,700-sq.-meter facility has eight exhibition rooms, including one with a railway diorama covering 310 sq. meters, one of the largest in the world.
