I apologize if this has already been discussed ...

Twice over the past few weeks, I've seen snippets of some luxury car commercial on television that has had an old, abandoned train station (with steam locos) as its backdrop, along with some English-looking manor home.

I'm guessing that the backdrop buildings / locos are all computer generated, but perhaps not. Has anyone seen this commercial? What car company? Could the derelict train station possibly be real???

Very curious,

TJ

Thanks, Cole ... I didn't recall which car brand was featured. Now I know, and I'll do a quick Google to find out some background. Cool commercial, huh?!

Thanks again, Cole. Here's the full Mercedes commercial. I did some Google reading. Apparently, the train station is real ... Elem Utaca 57, Budapest, Hungary ...

The mansion is also real ... Schossberger Castle in Hungary. (though not so run down in real life).

In the show "King of the Hill", there's a scene in an episode where Ted Wassanasong was running model trains.
