Thor Sheil's All-Gauge Model Railroading page remains a great place to go for layout ideas, especially of a Christmas (Yule) variety:

Thor may not be with us anymore, but thankfully his page remains in place. You can get lost in there for days.

It seems Thor's site has disappeared into the vapor that is the internet. He passed away a few years ago, and now his site has gone with him. It's unfortunate, as there was a lot of useful info on there.

This kinda plays into the notion that one can dispose of their hard-copy library because everything is seemingly available online. One has to think of an internet visit as the equivalent of a snapshot in time...what's there today may very well be gone tomorrow. Lack of interest (online views) often leads to content being removed.

Along those lines, I just ordered a bunch of reference books on prewar toys.

Some of the guys over on OGR have gotten Thor's site back up and re-hosted. Here's the link:

Sounds like the hosting agreement is in place for three years. Hopefully someone will pick it up or extend the service beyond that. Until then, enjoy it.
