Make: Bringing a Classic Marklin Z-Scale Model Railroad to Life With Arduino

I have always loved model railways, which apart from a love of Physics is probably the only other thing I have in common with Sheldon Cooper.
Years ago I enjoyed building my own models and constructing a layout in my bedroom, but that gave way to SciFi models, and then electronics, followed by music, which then gave way to girls, which is pretty much where I still am some thirty years later.
I couldn't help but be impressed by this layout and it made me think about maybe its time to think about building another.
Except mine will be on mars. With lots of girls playing synthesizers.
This lovely little model combines two of those, railways and electronics, including the ever present Arduino to make the engine move when come near it.
