Very nice a clean looking website -- download time is good, I normally work on a DSL line but I tried it on dial-up and it's fine. P.S. Very nice layout!

Nice! City scene: I like the elevated line in back. Mountain scene: is that white house for rent? I'm ready to move in.

You did a nice job on both your website, and your layout. The layout looks great!! Thanks for sharing.

You have done a great job on your layout with the space you had to work with. Very nice.

Very nice job, both on the website and the layout! Bill R., I was going to get in a bidding war with you to move into that pretty MTH farmhouse with the flowers -- until I saw the gator in the pond! - Thanks for sharing your O Gauge world, Jim!
Paul - The Empire State

Very nice layout, Jim. I especially like the mountain work, the coloring and shades of green look very realistic, reminds me of mossy rocks near a waterfall. One question though - how large of ships are running through your "small wet pond" that requires a bascule bridge?

O.K. now. I don't want your head to swell up so you can't get in your car. I do want to give you tremendous praise for creating one of the BEST track plans from an operational standpoint, and from a standpoint of structures and scenicing I have EVER seen in my entire life. The operational possibilities are wonderful. The towns and structures are terrific. But you know that already. You did a TREMENDOUS job, in my humble opinion.
You have created the "definitive" model railroad. A Picasso. A piece of art by a master of the craft. I cannot think of a single thing I would change or make better. I by no means want to insinuate that others that have put layouts up and posted photos are in any way lacking. I like something about every one of them. I think the layout here is the perfect classical, in every sense of the word, "toy train" layout however. It follows all my "rules" for layout construction. I am not saying that "L" and "Z" shaped layouts running all over creation aren't great, but such construction is not "traditional", in the sense of a rectangular board.
And, as I am sure you know your masterpiece lends itself to completely automatic pre-programmed train operation with more possibilities that I can imagine! Just peachy keen!

Very nice layout - the pictures downloaded pretty fast for me.

Nothing like having a diagram for your operating panel is there? The layout looks good but I wonder If there were closer to scale size street lights available. Everything else seems to match in scale. I know we all have out of scale items, myself included but I have been trying to keep my streetscape close since LEDs have been around.

Great job all around and welcome aboard.

Very nice layout - the pictures downloaded pretty fast for me.

Jim, great work with your layout and your website. I access via dialup from home, and I find your pageloads acceptable - more than worth the wait.
Big Rick - Cleveland, OH

Very well done, Jim
Peter Condro - Richmond VA

Nice layout and photos Jim! I especially like the rock formations and houses on top of the mountain. The town is also nice with interesting detail.
