TCA Norcal Site

This is a nice pic and highlites some cars on a standard gauge layout. This pic is courtesy of a TCA Norcal Member and their site.

I also like the fact that aren't a bunch of HUGE accessories on this layout, there are quite a few smaller one's and the layout not only looks great but the buildings that are there seem to stand out more. How about that for a run-on sentence? Posted by Hello

Can't tell what the entire layout looks like. I rather like the layout Peter Riddle did for his book. And he packed a lot into a fairly-compact space. One of the many beauties of Standard Gauge is that you can have a layout on a 4 x 8 plywood sheet [even 4 x 6 layout plans exist]. But the bigger the basement or attic, the better everything looks.

I agree, it isn't a huge picture; but I like how much life is packed into a relatively small space. The other thing I particularly liked was the balance this layout seems to have. It isn't overdone with a ton of buildings, crammed together and a ton of mountains, accessories, etc.. It just captures a nice slice of life in a little space.
