Fantastic Cities?:  As I arranged these cropped photos, I suddenly felt as if I were Batman flying over surrealistic cities that were 'almost real' fantasies of places I've never been to.  All the credit belongs to the modelers whose incredible dedication to detail makes these layouts so exciting to see.  One can almost step into them and become splendidly lost in a bygone world of traction.  Just imagine.
