You know that, I know that,
it is well known among the membership here.

But ...

Getting that concept through the heads of a general public,
who are programmed to value only the biggest, strongest, loudest, brightest, is ...


And ...

Way cool about publication !

Agree about general public.

But even amongst some sections of model railroading community,
the "bigger is better" is quite prevalent.

Not that I begrudge those that want to and can have a large layout,
but being stuck in that mindset can be problematic if available space becomes a problem.

I used to always try to make a layout bigger and bigger each time,
but usually when I got the layout to a 'large' size our family would then move house,
or I had to re-configure the layout to fit a smaller space for another reason.

Eventually I got tired of trying to do that and so opted for a few micro layouts instead,
that are easy to move and can fit in various small spaces throughout the house.

Regards, James
