The detail here is amazing.  





I agree with both of Reg's points.

I recently shared photos of my (small) layout with someone on the East Coast who had a massive one, each of us looking for feedback from the other.

Right away, the large layout owner picked up on a level of detail he said he couldn't begin to imagine every obtaining on his own. I marveled at the large expanses on his layout but noticed a distinct lack of details. The reasons in each case are self-evident. 

Frankly, I'd have liked to have a layout at least a little bit bigger than I have, but if it is a decision between what I have or a larger layout with not nearly as much detail, I'd be happier with the smaller layout I have now.

As for the Mara Harbor masterpiece, well, it's one of finest On30 layouts I've ever seen for fine detail.
