I recently discovered these pdf books and thought some folk might enjoy the read.  I have found all three to be of great interest to me.

There's nothing else to be said.  The Questioning Normal essay is it.  You may now close all the internet fora.  The discussion is over.

I actually had another part of this sight bookmarked to order his track detailing book.

And I agree with Lee- though it saddens me he didn't write this column in N Scale Mag first!

Yup. I totally agree. I just did a quick skim and thought "this guy gets it".

It parallels a thought I had last night while discussing something with Doc V (that's his new name since he lives in the wild west). It's really all about attainable and sustainable model railroading.

Dream layouts are great, but don't delay your gratification while waiting for one.

That's kinda the approach I'm taking. Sure, it'd be awesome to do the full NCR from Wago on the shores of the Susquehanna all the way to Penn Station in Baltimore, but right now, I can do a little part of it (or two), so why stress about the future when you can enjoy the present (at least with your hobby)?

Agreed.   It is Proto:48 tho.... so I guess that's why this is posted in the "N Scale" section...   :D

looks good...but, wow, rather pricey...rather spend 25.00 on a piece of rolling stock

FWIW...just my opinion

really nice articles...'scale' is irrelevant when discussing modelling techniques (obviously there are concessions to be made depending on some scale techniques), but, apart from being able to reproduce the actual distressed wood ties, these painting techniques are quite viable in N scale track weathering-great work and truly inspirational!
