That's how many views this blog has received since I started it in July, 2009.
As I said when the blog reached 50,000 views in October of that year, 100,000 in 2011, and 250,000 in 2012, I started writing about my layout and other train-related things because it gave me a creative outlet away from day-to-day work stresses and issues.
The idea that it would be viewed so many times never occurred to me as even a remote possibility.
But like the private owner's train on the M & M Sub. in the photo above, once the blog started rolling more and more people seemed interested in getting on board. Thanks for coming along on the trip!
P.S. And I got some good news from the good folks at Statcounter, who keep track of the number of views on the blog. Apparently all that comment spam the blog receives is not recorded, so the view count represents honest-to-goodness real people who are interested in trains.
