The Chocolate Train

Artist Andrew Farrugia

A train made entirely of chocolate has set a new record with the Guinness World Record as the longest chocolate structure in the world. 

The sculpture, is on display at Brussels South Station. 

The sculpture is  354.05 meters in length (112 feet) and weighs over  1250 kilos (2,755 pounds).

Andrew the artist said, "It was going to be much smaller than it eventually became, but I kept on adding wagon on wagon, and that's why it's the size it is today."

It took over 700 man hours to construct this masterpiece.

He said he came up with the idea, of the train last year after visiting the Belgian Chocolate Festival in Bruge.  

"He had this idea for awhile, this realization of a long chocolate train, you know, because a train you can make as long as you like."

I found this on Youtube.  Hear all about it...
