It sounds like you guys are describing the article about modeling Sheridan, Colorado in HOn3.

Is this the one?

As I understand it, this was quite a controversial picture/model.

What stands out to me about it, that I like, which I see highly lacking in many model railroads is texture. It represents so many different types of materials, wood and rock and stone and brick, etc., that it feels very interesting and exciting. Prototypical or not, I think a lot more railroads could use more texture. Frary talks about this in his scenery books a bunch. It's something I'd really like to learn more of.
