    Details on the two photos are difficult to see, but here are the 9 differences I think I’ve spotted.
    1. A ceiling light show on the RH photo is missing in the LH photo.
    2. The lady in the RH photo is missing a purse or camera with strap, in the LH photo.
    3. A red structure shown near the bottom of the layout in the LH photo is missing in the RH photo.
    4. A piece of the yellow plastic chain shown in the LH photo is missing in the RH photo.
    5. The black and white object at the corner of the layout in the LH photo is missing in the RH photo.
    6. One vent duct at the ceiling of the LH photo is missing in the RH photo.
    7. The angled brace between the wall and ceiling, shown in the LH photo is missing in the RH photo.

    Looking only 5 seconds see yellow chain to left of woman not in 2nd photo. Didn’t look more after.

  • Col Sarllsays:

    Have seen a few differences of course but out of curiosity where was this Train Show & when?
    As an Australian it is rare to see such shows in Oz as big as this one

  • Arvid Qvigstadsays:

    It’s a little tough describing where the differences are, so I’ll include a JPEG showing them.

Use Tiny Railroad Micro Controllers

A micro controller is basically a small programmable computer device to help the model railroader “make things operate.” It is clever way to realistically replicate the movements, actions and functions you are likely to see on a full size railroad.

It’s YOUR Railroad!

Your rolling stock and locomotives might actually be the center of attention on your layout, but the scenic features that surround and envelop your layout is what's likely to make your train setup stand proud of the rest. Your selection of scenery and structures will add an element of customization that will make your railroad truly unique.

Scenery, structures, and fine detailing is a fundamental aspect of any good model railroad, particularly if it is intended to replicate a true-to-life railroading scene. How realistic or authentic you make your railroad is entirely up to you... and you alone.

Some enthusiasts like to replicate every tiny detail so as to accurately depict, in every aspect, a miniaturized version of a real life scene.

Others in this hobby adopt a more "free-style" approach and choose to mix and match accessories and features they personally prefer. Even though the purist will possibly be unimpressed with unrealistic or out of context elements, it is YOUR railroad layout so you can make it anything you personally want!
