This is a work of art. A rare gem. It really reminds me of those diaplay layouts in the Atlas and other manufacturers of the 60's and 70's that set the hook in me for model railroading.

What a great layout! I'm really enjoying the micro and retro layouts that have been popping up here lately. Seeing this makes me want to commission one for myself.

(Just seeing this for the first time)

Magnificent!

The thing the stands out to me is how nothing stands out.  It's remarkable how a purposefully toy-like layout can look so natural.  This is not at all surprising coming from DKS, but still worth a comment.
