Gorgeous!  Absolutely!  I love seeing miscellaneous things in layouts like these - I'm not a pirate fan, but couldn't resist the QAR, either - but you can't let it go to waste!

Great use of LEGO facades for the backdrop, too.  :thumbup:

It's very impressive, and I'm very jealous.

This layout is totally cool!
I love to see the old 7740 set on such a beautiful diorama!  :wub:
The tunnel is very well made, and the castle above the second tunnel is amazing: I like the rock on which it's placed!  :wub:

Really, really nice.  I aspire to build something like that for my little boy.  He's only 2 1/2 right now, Duplo stage.  I'm stocking up and making plans though!  Thanks for sharing, Joe

Excellent layout MXLPT! It's nice to see a detailed custom layout. I love the mountain and scenery and those two steam locos, very well done! What are the dimensions and possible piece count?   Posted Image

Looks good! Surely though it can never be finished can it, one thing I've found with model railways is that they never really finished and there is always some little thing that you add or change slightly. But it is a very nice layout, I wish I had the room for something similar.

Nice train MOCs, I recognized both Danish and Norwegian locos (with some Swedish genes). The whole layout is amazing too.

Very nice and inspiring lay out. I saw some movies on youtube from your layout about one year ago.

This is absolutely amazing! I love all the little details and how you included many themes in it. Do you have any idea how much you spent on this? Must have been a lot. :D

Great layout, made even greater by the presence of the dutch 1200 series locomotive, my favorite dutch locomotive.

That's just plain awesome :o I can't wait to start on my permanent layout! Do you buy lots of single bricks for this? I wouldn't know how to get that many brown tiles for the tracks, or the blue for the water...
Trains i own: 7715, 7745, 7755, 7939
Trains i was stupid enough to sell: 7760, 7725

I have bought lots from Bricklink, and all the Brown tiles. Yes that took time to get complete for the entire track:-)

This is a great layout. Everything seems to be in the perfect place. You did a great job blending everything together with nice landscaping.
And then you also got some great trains!

Fantastic layout!  Gorgeous but at the same time inspiring; just looking at that makes me want to clean out my basement, break out my trains and spend the next five years building a "real" layout like yours rather than my dinky, annual Christmas Tree loop.  Great job.

Beautiful layout. I have been looking at your pictures since you first posted them and find something new every day. You have some very nice detailed scenes.
