    Either I missed it or it didn't get mentioned, but I'm assuming these are the Scale Trains Auto racks judging by the boxing glove couplers?
    What did you do about the wracked truck frames?
    Were they molded bad or were the axles too long?

    That’s a really interesting layout or diorama you have there. Do you have a thread or website where you describe the build or show more pictures?

    Yeah, it's a coffee table built around 3'x6' layout. Unfortunately no build thread as I put it all together pre-2000. The table construction itself is pretty rudimentary with mostly tongue and groove glue joints and built with red oak. Pretty solid though as it's traveled 1000s of miles since it was built. I recently posted up a few pics of it on another thread if you want to check it out in more detail:

    Could this be done in Unitrack?

    If you are still intrigued and want more info I'll be happy to answer any questions you have.

    Looks great! Windows make a huge difference on the Walthers model plow. But I had the hardest time getting glazing into the cupola. Took forever.

    I agree, "green and gold is better!" Nice little scene, it even has the outhouse! With an excellent view of the RR!
