There’s got to be some sort of zen in building and playing with model trains sets or something, otherwise grown men wouldn’t do it, and even though we don’t get it, the results are impressive. Take this realistic model train layout that was inspired by the South Bronx. Builder Peter Feigenbaum creates his model train backgrounds with authentic looking sets. Many of the urbanscapes are balls on accurate, since they’re based on actual photos, and the rest are just make believe, but still impressive. Check out the dude’s website see the galleries and marvel how accurately the grime, soot, and muck of the city is captured so effectively in small-scale.
