Nice video of an N-scale layout

Very nice camera work. I particularly like the tracking shots. Great editing and sound effects. Nice layout too.
My only nitpicks are that it could use some music and it's a bit too long.

That's Jean-Louis Simonet's "real" layout: the main website is here.
He's also the genius behind the 2'x4' Possum Valley layout, an amazing piece of work that's been quite an inspiration to many of us modeling in small spaces.
Ditto on the groovy camera work / tracking shots / POV.
Thanks for finding & sharing!

I don't know what is more impressive, the video, especially the synced audio soundtracks or the layout?
Manhole covers in the streets & operating doors on the roundhouse. Sheesh.

Excellent vid, but if I was to "nitpick" it would be : a lack of weathering, trains,buildings all seem to clean. My daughter told me off about my own photos & vids and she was right. A program of dirtying EVERYTHING has been instigated and I am pleased with the results so far.See my videos on you-tube at: http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=bobtheteddybear#g/u

Yeah, lots of neat details all around. I'm on the fence about the music though. While the right music could make that much better, the wrong music could really mess it up.

For the sake of my ego; I’m attributing it all to CGI.
