Marc over at the Shin-Yukari blog is doing some fantastic work! The level of detail is amazing. So much layout in a relatively small footprint makes super-detailing this this more possible.
As far as goals for a future layout goes, Marc's layout ticks a LOT of buttons for me. The track work is a lot of fun here.
There is so much action to be had. It's really well thought out.
The details are stunning and I love his use of lighting and electrics - another goal for my layout when I get it up and going again.
Goals. So many goals met here. If I didn't know better, I would have thought the image below to be a real photo. Really grand work!
And to see items that I own taken up to grand levels like this is really exciting for me. I have this truck depot, but the lighting and internal detail additions really take it above and beyond.
Lastly, I would really like some complex switch areas like this on my layout. It's a fun section.
