So what happens when you take all the elements that make up a good LEGO® train layout, trains, buildings, landscape, apply a laser like focus on them to depict one specific era in time at one specific location and then turn it all up to 11? You get Elmore 1972 from Tim Gould and Mike Pianta.
I believe at it's highest level model railroading is an art form and the model railroader an artist. It's an art that aims to capture a moment in time. To freeze an era and a place and tell the story of the daily life that revolves around a small stretch of train tracks some where in the world. This layout from Mike Pianta and Tim Gould proves that LEGO trains can not only play in the same league as more traditional model railroads but that LEGO trains can be art.
This layout is a fantastic piece model railroading artistry. But this isn't the first from this team. Mike and Tim also collaborated last year to create the inspiring Ararat 1972 layout. So be sure to check out all the photos from these two wonderful layouts. This is the magic that can come from the wonderful hobby of LEGO trains.
