I really hope this topic catches on. There's much more the 3-Rail Scale than just achieving the most true-to-prototype realism possible with locomotives and rolling stock. When I look at a layout I'm not looking at scale couplers or how a loco or car is weathered; I'm looking at how well the structures and scenery are detailed and if the track plan has purpose and not how much track and switches one can fit into a given space, That's where the real talent shines. So for time being I'll just be following this thread for inspiration as I begin my new and final layout. Thanks for starting this thread Joe.
