A simmering row between two model railway enthusiasts in Berlin came to a head when they agreed to divide the train set they’d built up for three years.  When the one known in court only as ‘Pierre R’ claimed 33-year-old Uwe’s favourite locomotive, Uwe stabbed him 13 times, cut off his testicles and threw him out of a ninth-storey window.
