    Beautiful consistancy... and did you notice that very little rolling stock was displayed. And no locos, I believe.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Wow. That layout is amazing. The size, density and the perfection of his layout is just incredible.

    The things that always amaze me about his layout is how busy and big it looks, and how much it looks like the "dirty thirties".

    I'd like to find those layouts. The one is in north Scottsdale, the others probably in Paradise Valley. It must be nice to dedicate two acres to your layout. I could have done that when we lived in Wickenburg, just that it would have been in a flood plane and indeed would flood several times a year.:eek: :eek:

    Wow! What a layout. :eek: Now I know what $10,000 buys. :lol::lol:

    The more I look at the pictures the more familiar they look. Wasn't this layout featured in MR or somewhere else?

    I'm guessing that ten grand might get you the plans for a backyard layout like that... not the two acre one though. Remember, he said it took two years to build that one. Again, just guessing, but I'd figure that smaller layout might be worth $250,000 and the two acre one at least double that... and that's without rolling stock. If you live in those areas, you can afford to spend that.

    That one where the guy has it in his front yard? Well, he must have a very lenient HOA:rolleyes::rolleyes:... I know ours would be on me like a rash if I tried to do that at my house.:eek: :eek:

    It was one of Kalmbach's favorite layouts, and I'm sure it appeared in MR many times.
