It's not easy to build a beautiful inner-city layout, and that's one reason few modelers take up the challenge. But I found a layout which takes up that challenged and exceeds it in every way, earning itself the "box office" treatment today.

These kinds of exorbitant prices start to look like "Railway Robbery!"
The TCA Eastern Division's York Meet is one of the year's most spectacular events for model railroaders and manufacturers alike. We certainly enjoyed our time there last week, and managed to see all the latest news and reveals coming from Lionel's impressive booth.
