This is a 'must visit' site.
Lex Parker is doing a terrific job with his model of The DENVER & RIO GRANDE WESTERN in On3, and his progress is well documented on line. If you are planning a layout of this most popular prototype (or any prototype, really) you should follow Lex's odessesy.
This is Art Fahie's amazing N scale layout, The Niagara & Pearl Creek Railroad Co. Art not only builds beautiful models, he photographs them beautifully as well. The Magic City is based on the extraordinary city of Amherst on his pike (with his gracious permission, of course: ). Many have built larger cities, few have built a more pleasing one. Art has captured everything necessary, and used ALL the tricks I have ever heard of in this splendid effort. Visit this site for inspiration... like we do.
RailroadMania! A great site to find a variety of information, featured layout tours, with a focus on layout design and design software. The links and references are rated by real visitors, like you! Way cool...
The Athabasca System - A beautiful N scale layout, and a stunning site (get your plug-ins ready)!
With just one loco and one track (look Ma, no turnouts!) well, we're not exactly 'into' DCC. But if you are, or are just considering DCC, Don Crano is your man! "Model Railroading with DCC" is the place to look first for anything you could ever need to know about this form of layout control. Don is a substantial contributor to our hobby, a VERY helpful feller', and one heck of a nice guy!
