                 Small details help a lot.
Some times it takes a large structure.              

                        Sometimes an area is full of tracks.
Sometimes there are no tracks.                       

Sometimes things are crowded.

Sometimes things are "well-used".

Sometimes things are well kept.

Sometimes there is work going on everywhere.

Sometimes there is no work going on.

                   Sometimes there are traiins everywhere.
Sometimes there are no trains. 

                                         Sometimes there are man made
                                         things everywhere.
Sometimes it is a simple flower.                       

There are tunnels.

                 There are briudges.

There are surface mines.

There are roads, streets and highways.

There are places for study or meditation.

There are places for mischief.

There are cluttered places.

There are empty places.

There are places with water.

There are public places.

There are private places.

The "tree" is the only scenery that a great friend,
a wonderful modeler, and a fantastic human being had
on his railroad and is a monument to him.
This time of the year I always miss him.
The Dutchman, Mr. Malcolm Vordenbaum.

Our prayers also go out to Ms. Dana Robbins, wife
of this weeks photographer, Rob Robbins as
she is recovering from surgery.

LOOK OUT 2014,
