I (personally) would recommend the magazine anyway, but I thought I'd mention it here because of the unusual amount of articles of interest to town fans in this particular issue. If you want the Christmas building instructions before the big day, you can download a digital copy of the magazine on the publisher's website or check to see if a local bookstore carries BrickJournal.
While we're on the topic, if you're interested in finding out about LEGO events near you, you can check out the BrickJournal Calendar. Most events feature at least one town/train layout of some sort. I post all events that I hear about on there, and so do a variety of other people who follow LEGO-related news closely.

This builder's been stockpiling good creations and just posted a bunch at once. There is a whole "flickr collection" of town MOCs. I've gone ahead and posted one photo of each so far on the blog here, and made each photo a link to the flickr set - just click the pictures here to go to more photos of each building.

From Aliencat!'s flickr photostream. Longtime readers will probably remember this great builder from BrickShelf. There are a variety of buildings and town vignettes (bignettes?) here that look new to me. I'm really liking the crash-landed UFO:

The Zombie apocalypse layout is roughly based on the Cafe Corner standard for the buildings, but the people and details aren't based on anything we'd see in a town - they're based on fantasy/horror films and video games. Be warned that there is a bit of violence here - but it's all in good fun. I didn't get all the in-jokes here (I'm not into the zombie flicks), but the buildings are great and of much more universal appeal - in the photo above (from dunechasers's flickr photostream) you can see an amazing shopping mall (I believe I heard someone say that a LEGOLAND model builder built it).
In addition to the links at the other site, there's a separate flickr set for the Zombie Apocafest 2008 layout.
The more traditional town layout photos seem to be mixed in with the rest of the BrickCon photos. Additionally, many of the town-themed models also have a Disney theme, such as this impressive section (also from dunechasers's flickr photostream):

Several of the Racer sets for 2009 have road plates. They look as if they are two different sizes that connect together.
What size do you thin they are. I'm guessing 8 x 16 and 16 x 16. What ever size they are, I'm sure they will be extremely useful to Cafe Corner fans (maybe even as roof tiles).

Anyways this is a creation I felt I had to post because it's really awesome, don't you think?
It's part of the Japanese Brick Fan Town 2008 display, and this one is by far my favourite module.
