Very interesting how everyone's opinion differs on what they like, or don't like, on a layout. I suppose that's why you see similar, but never exactly the same, layouts throughout the land.

The diversity of layouts you see at shows, on YouTube or photo's (on here or elsewhere), shows just how unique every layout is. Be it tiny, small, medium, large or massive, someone somewhere had laid a few pieces of track, added electricity and a train. The objective of making the train move completes the mission and a sense of victory prevails all around.

Surround this little track & train with buildings, scenery, technology and slow & fast running trains. Before you know it, it expands so much into what looks like real life in miniature and, well, you have created a monster! It devours your time, space, thoughts and pennies. It will never be satisfied :twisted:

Still, it's fun to do eh :D

Me? I love it all! I'm in awe of what everyone else makes and creates..............just amazing what your knowledge and skills bring to the world of model trains. Well done to you all ;)

Good track laying.
Slow trains.
Scenery details.
And a seamless blend from scenery to back board.
