    I have been very frustrated lately trying to fit buildings into the layout to look right. By experimenting with different structures, I figured that the problem is that most of my buildings are too big, and make the layout seem small. If you look at Walthers Bralick building, George Roberts Printing, and their furniture building, these take up alot of space, and their windows are so big, it almost looks like HO when placed next to my Water st freight station, atlas passenger station, or model power houses. I only used the smaller buildings and it made the yard look to be a mile long, when actually each track only holds a dozen cars. It is finally looking like a town, rather than 3 big buildings in the middle of nowhere. I might sell these big buildings on Ebay, and use the money for smaller buildings like DPM. Anybody else run into this problem with big buildings?

    It is all a matter of balance I suppose. In some situations those buildings look fine.
