I’ve just posted a new layout design blog on my business site HERE.

For reasons that are understandable, many assume that I’m an advocate of small, switching layouts.  That’s not really true.  I’m actually  more of a proponent of layouts that are simple enough to build (and yet still interesting)  that  those on the sidelines are motivated to jump into the fray of this great hobby of ours.  There is no “right” way to model a railroad and for many, long main line runs are more captivating than switching a more compact area.   Large layouts need not be complex hence the subject of the blog.
