Thanks for the additionnal pics, Robert. In spite of my preference for the wilder part of this layout, I must say the town is exquisitely done.

Here's the swamp area of the layout. The mangrove trees were outstanding, and density of the forest's. You can almost smell the catfish cooking. Unfortunately I couldn't get an overall shot of the layout as there were so many people around it.

That has to be some of the best scenery I have ever seen. The detail is incredible, love the skunk in the last picture.

Thanks, Robert, for the additionnal pictures of the layout. The mangrove area is my favorite part of this layout, and while some were thinking about their own model of the boat house, I must say I have been thinking about my own version of the scene depicted in these pictures.

Rob,
You're correct, it was hard to get a good overall shot due to the continual crowd. I'll add a couple of my shots from a wider angle. One reasonable overall shot (if you can see though the guy in the front of shot), which sort of shows some of the projections along the front of the layout.









That last one is a reasonable impression of the wall of scenery...Muskrat Ramble, Dolly Varden, and then Geoff's Sunny Corner and his bush boxes display. Made for a fairly impressive sight upon entry to the layout & traders hall.

Thanks for the overall pictures, Dan, they really give a feeling of the global size of this layout (and also of the "wall of scenery" : nice formulation).
