What I really like about it is the road going across. On most layouts roads look terrible and unrealistic. On Taxari's, it immediately made me think of the roads going through Inman yard here in Atlanta.

agreed. that is nice. he's avoided the temptation to cram too much in and to have a realistic road rather than one that looks like it was included as an afterthought.

if it's in the northeast, then both types of PVM open hopper are appropriate for coal traffic. the colour of the ground cover suggests a coal area.

You got it Alex, that's what sells it and what makes it look real, add bit of rust paint on the far rails and I am sold.

Here some pictures from the exhibition. The Layout is covered und surrounded by acryl glas.

Picture 4 is my favorite view.

There are rusty rails. ;-)

I have build the wiring. We have four sidings and additional the switcher shed and three functioning turnouts. There are two circuits, one for the main circle and one for the sidings incl. shed.

Yes, you can repost it.

The locomotive behind is a boxcab-diesel from shapeways at the scale TTn3 and in foreground a rebuild of an old whitemetal kit. Taxari has more informations about it.
