Happy Tracks!

Very nicely done.  Not too much and not too little.  One question: what's that dumb dog doing  laying around in those temperatures?  I never had one (and I've had a lot of dogs) who didn't mind going out in the cold and wet, but never saw one lay down in it.

Very well done.  I always felt winter and fall scenes are the hardest to replicate.  So much of the outcome is dependent on the main items and subtle touches.  More often the seasonal add-ons can be too much/heavy or unbalanced and overpower the desired look of the scene.

You can have a steam train ...If you'd just lay down your tracks.

My family had a golden retriever that absolutely loved the snow and she would lay down in it for hours.

Absolutely!!  Same breed, same love of snow.

But hardly "dumb"!!!!  BOTH of them....Millie & Daisy!  And we're sure that was a genuine smile on their faces when they came in from the snowy cold!!

thumbs up

BTW....Nice snow scene, Dorcie!  More shots of the layout???

There's a certain whimsical look that your firm captures that is great. It's like the latest cartoon images in movies that captivates us. It makes us feel like our childhood memories come to life.

Many builders try to make a model look so real that anything not perfect stands out like a sore thumb. Our eyes automatically scour the scene looking for those imperfections. The presentations that your firm makes, removes that response and we seem to welcome everything in the scene. I'd compare your firm to Disney's efforts if I had to compare.

 I might not have explained that perfectly, but I'm trying to explain why I like your posts so much. Thanks again for sharing.

Why go back to DCC when I have DCS!

So appreciate your feedback!!! Roger founded company Theatrical Warehouse (Hence TW....) in 1982 and I joined in 1985 when we were primarily serving the theatrical, Tradeshow, Exhibit industry. Long story short... we decided to create TW TrainWorx as a sub-division in 2008 and my Big Vision Dream was to have Roger Farkash become the next โ€œDisneyโ€ of Toy Trains in the 21st century..... 

So again, your feedback certainly means the world to me and I am grateful for your comment ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚ Long Live the Toy Train Industry!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

Great Dorcie! I did not wish to lower the work in any way. I would compare it to looking at a painting. We all get different things and emotions out of it.

Certainly the work here is very realistic. It just lifts the spirits beyond that. It captures our imagination and that's the lure of toy trains.

There are many great examples presented here on the forum of great work from many different sources. I did not wish to dismiss any of them in any way.

Will you post photos of this build when itโ€™s complete.  Also is this one layout built in sections and what color paint are your mountains

Yes, I'll continue posting process photos and of course finished photos once installed. All of our layouts are built in sections in order to transport them...set them up and/or take them down as well. We use Liquitex Titanium White for the snow on the mountains and country side

I agree with Engineer Joe:

The magical scenes being created in this layout are captivating. I could see this layout as being a layout that "no hard core rivet counting" is involved... instead more designed for the simple relaxing pleasure and fun of sitting there sipping some hot chocolate while watching the train(s) run.

Is this layout loosely inspired/based on the various visual impacts seen within "The Polar Express" movie?
