It ain't just Pelle Soeborg http://www.soeeborg.dk/hobby.htm who gives great model railroad in the U.S. vernacular.

Check out Carsten Lundten's N scale version of Glorieta Pass

It's really kind of hard to support your local hobby shop when the nearest hobby shop that's worth the name is a 150 mile roundtrip.

Thanks for the link André. Not only another interesting Danish layout, but we also learn some Danish (spoken Danish is nearly unpronounceable for non Danes (a lovely people).

What do they have that we don't? Lack of McDonalds? Naw, they're evrywhere. It's a really nice layout, though! Wish I had one that good!

Very nice, but I can't bring myself to except that it is N scale, looks too much like HO, either that or they are very small people these Danes.

the second photo really shows off what happens when you combine a great modelled scene with good lighting and a dark (black?) fascia and valance . the train and scenery pop right out of the picture , it's fantastic !

also note that he's using a darker blue for the sky than we see in most photo's , and the way his backdrop blends into his foreground scenery . wow
