    I like it to look like natural wood.

    I've looked at this several times. My eye was always drawn towards the figures. I just noticed that it is a converted rail barge. I was wondering why the deck had the addition wood on it

    I have no idea if it is converted rail barge. I do not think this type of equipment was used in this area.
    The photo was taken in 1947 - it is possible that in post-war times barge was originally from other place and converted. It is just a hypothesis.

    You noticed this tiny detail ! Congratulations !
    I think there are two options:
    - railway barge
    - old rails used as a construction - support material.
    I think the second option is possible because this rail looks not to be pararell to the barge axis. They look to be perpendicular - strange for moving wagons.
    My deduction is based on the location of the prow of the barge.

    It is time to continue the project. Based on the photo - I need to have some people to populate it. They are Preiser's figures:

    To make a diver I have to cut the head and install "helmet":

    Air hose is necessary as well...

    I agree with you there.
    I can't wait to see how your diver turns out!

    It is time to make an air pomp using "scrap box" materials:

    I was afraid that it will be oversized. It is a little to big but still reasonable with Preiser people:

    All the pieces put together. I did not expected that one photo may lead to this tiny byt very satisfying project. Well there is a lot of work to finish the diorama ...

    I came back to the cars. Bussigs were were up-graded with width signs at the front of the car:

    I also get 3D printed Willys 1936 limousines:

    Very nice, those Bussigs, exactly what are they? Military vehicles? I am sure it is a language, world location thingy? All I know is they look really cool! Love the color scheme on them, including the lettering.

    Thank you for your comment. Bussing was a German producer of trucks, buses, military vehicles. You can find some more information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Büssing

    Prototype of those model vehicles - Bussing Nag 650 - was produced in mid 30ties. It was used by transport companiec including furniture transportation.

    C. Hartwig company is a transport (logistic) company established in Poznan (my home city) in 1858. Successor companies stil exist in Poland.
    I do not have the proof that C. Hartwig used those Bussing trucks but the paint scheme is based on more conventional equipment they used before WWII:

    Some progress with the diorama itself. I got MBZ carton laser cut and engraved roads. This is work in progress - before painting:
