Over a million visits

It happened while I wasn't paying attention, but this blog recently surpassed a million visits.

The chart shows a break down of the top ten countries for those visitors. I'm a bit surprised that 3 of the top 5 countries are not native English language.

France, Germany and Canada are very close. Russia just edged past UK.

The folks down under also are quite frequent guests. Who would have guessed Ukraine would be number 10?

If you are frequent visitor please leave a comment to say hi, perhaps describe why you visit and what you want to see in the way of future coverage.

Of the 736 posts on the blog, the most popular posts were:

I don't know what it all means, but it fun to think about. The internet makes this a smaller world. Hopefully it will be a better world. 

I don't monetize this blog as I don't like the cluttered look of ads. The internet is already full of enough ads and click bait. Hopefully you can visit here and enjoy a glimpse into the projects that keep me off the streets and hopefully out of trouble. 

So to all of you, sincere thanks, merci beaucoup, thanks ehh, vielen danke, благодаряbedanken, Дякую u.


  1. I'd say I'm frequent. Much prefer the Aquia line to your port layout. I much prefer antique kettles to modern weasels.

    A big attraction to me is that most of my railway/railroad interest is 19C but it's rare to see 19C American modelling. Even rarer to see it done by someone who wants to get it right.

    1. Thanks. Stay with us, as work will recommence on the ACW layout later this year.

  3. Congratulations...I'm one of the 2.7%! I noticed a million and 65 the other day and we both started blogging at about the same time...it's funny, I don't know how it's been with you, but I got quite excited by 1000, 100,000 and even 500,000, but seem to lose interest as it took so long to do the 'other half' as it were? I guess, in the end you realise that the total isn't going to go down, so it will keep rising!

    Love this blog, your modelling skills and sence of space/visualisation make everything you do a joy to follow...roll on 2,000,000!

  4. Bernard, I'm one of the 1,1% and always very happy to see what you are doing. Keep up the good work!
