My NMRA colleague,John Dennis, has been published in Australian and European model railway press.  He has a good eye for photography, and it is made easy by wonderful modelling downunder.

Another nice layout is Muskrat Ramble which made its debut at Easter.

Cool video link, Rod. Thanks for posting it.

Ya know, as I was watching that video one thing suddenly became very apparent to me. We spend all this time trying to make everything look so real but in the end, in our little worlds most everything remains stationary except the trains. In my real life experience most everything is moving but the trains. Of course, the trains move but not as much as everything else around them. I know, there is not much we can do about that. It just suddenly hit me watching that video.

Mike

http://www.carendt.com/

Okay, I know that this website is listed in many places, both high and low, but there is a reason it's everywhere and it's because it is a first rate website. So I post the link above for anyone who has not yet heard of carendt.com.

carendt.com was started by Carl Arendt although he passed away almost two years ago, but the site continues on as his legacy and contribution to the hobby of small layouts, narrow gauge, Gn15, and others. Since Carl's passing, other editors have taken his place to manage the site, and the monthly updates have started coming back, although at an irregular rate. regardless, I'm sure Carl Arendt will go down as a pioneer in the hobby of model railroading, especially micro layouts. He was also a definite master of his craft.

For anyone interested in a ton of small layouts (most under 4 square feet in area, but go up to almost a sheet of plywood) then this site is for you. also, if anyone has a layout to share, there is a link so that the new editors can receive any layout stories for the next update. BTW, I'm sure they need new layouts badly so that the updates can be lengthened and look like they used to.

Hi all,

You might like the collection at this site. It has been collected by Mario Rapinett over many tears.

Thanks for depressing me first thing in the morning Rod.

I think I'll quit trying to build models, and concentrate on something that I'm good at--scraping dog crap off my shoe comes to mind.

Seriously, thanks for posting all that great stuff in one place!


Herb

Now Herbert, you are indeed a master of what you do. I can't think of anyone more qualified to carry that name. I do have a comment or two about "masters". Over many years, I have seen many of the "masters"' works. Some built beautiful model railroads...which couldn't and wouldn't operate without problems. I have seen exquisite locomotives and cars built by fellows who have no place (nor desire to build) a place to run their creations. Masters of the electrical side of this hobby, most without either layout or equipment. Oh yes, there have been some "John Allen" types over the years who have done it all, but most of us are not in that rarified atmosphere that floats above our heads. Yes, I may be hyper-critical about this...I only know of one Master and he/she ain't got nothing to do with this hobby except for giving us the talent to do what we do. I don't sit at the computer looking for "inspiration" and I don't really find it in the printed word any more. I seem to get more inspired by seeing things that would fail to pass muster in a "serious" model contest, "masters" don't inspire me at all. The word is over used, maybe "greats" or "artists" would be a better term, there are many of those. Me? I am just a jack of all trades, master of none. Just what I like.

Woodie-in a somewhat serious mood

Hi Herb,

Woodies right. There are two types in the hobby. Model Railroaders and Railroad Modellers. You got to pick which one you are.

Me; I just fluff around a bit.
