World record for longest gingerbread train

For the second time in five years, a Norwegian train station is home to the world’s longest gingerbread train.

In Norway, a new train station is home this season to the 370.75 meter long gingerbread train. Note: for this record, there can’t even be 1mm gaps between cars. The gaps were filled with sugar.

The previous record — from 2011 — was 206 meters.

How much ginger bread is that? 700 kilograms. It took 800 kids in cooperation with local Holmestrand, Hof and Sande businesses to do it.
