Train in Brussels is World’s Longest Chocolate Structure-Truth!

Summary of eRumor:
This is a forwarded email with photos of what appears to be a train, sculpted from chocolate, on display at a train station in Brussels.  The email alleges that this is the world’s longest chocolate structure.

The Truth:

This train holds the Guinness world record for being the longest chocolate structure, according to a November 20, 2012 article by Reuters.
The article said, “A train made entirely out of chocolate was unveiled to set a new world record as the longest chocolate structure ever made. The train is 34 meters or 112-feet long and weighs 1250 kilograms, or nearly 2800 pounds.”  The sculpture was made by Andrew Farrugia who took over 700 hours to build the chocolate train that is now on display at Brussels south station.
