I started this blog to create a diary of sorts that would document the building, rebuilding and operating my home layout.  The fact that so many other modelers have found it somewhat interesting is particularly gratifying.  Thanks to all who stop by my little corner of the internet.

* There are no stats available for the first year since I didn't include them in the first anniversary post!

** Of course, by including the list of Top Ten posts and associated links here all I've done is guaranteed people will click on them, increasing their total views more!!

Congrats, Marty. It's been great following along with your journey in the hobby.

Thanks Trevor!
Tune in over the course of the next 12 months and see what (mis)adventures await. Such thrilling topics as:
1. The largest roof on a model of a railroad station...ever (or at least it seems that way!)
2. Getting the prototypical steam engines up and running (and painted).
3. Will the trees ever be finished?

I love your web site - I enjoy seeing what you are doing with your backdrop. I hope Kate and I can come by to see the backdrops.
We are working on our backdrops for a June 2017 open house that I am shooting for in McLean
