In November 2012 master Maltese chocolatier Andrew Farrugia unveiled an awesome chocolate model train that broke the Guinness World Record for World’s Longest Chocolate Structure. Measuring 34 metres (111.5 ft) long, the chocolate choo-choo was painstakingly made over the course of 784 hours using 1,285 kg (2,832 lbs) - that 6.5 million calories worth - of the finest Belgian chocolate.
"The chocolicious train is made of two parts: the first seven wagons are modeled after the new Belgian trains, and the rest of the train is modeled after the old train wagons, including a wagon with a bar and restaurant on board. The artist created the masterpiece in his home country of Malta, and had all its different parts transported to Belgium in 25 wooden boxes. Unfortunately, the train sustained considerable damage during the trip, and several of the train’s walls had completely collapsed. But, after working day and night to repair everything, the train was ready for the big unveiling, which took place yesterday."
Farrugia’s mouthwatering locomotive was sponsored by Belgian chocolate brand Belcolade. Its unveiling marked the beginning of Brussels Chocolate Week and aptly took place at Brussels South Station located Belgium’s capital city.
