End of the line...

Postby AstroGoat760 » Wed Nov 14, 2018 7:51 pm

With regard to the upcoming modules that will be built to the still-in-development Possum Trax Modular standard, I have come up with what I feel is a bit rib tickling idea for one of the 2' x 2' modules, which I am calling "Dead Man's Curve", as I am looking into the aspect of making a TT Scale Graveyard.

This poses two questions:

Does any maker in TT Scale make graveyard suitable details, and would HO scale tombstones be too far "Out of scale" if needed to be used?

I know only IGRA Laser Cut Tombstones (item# 60 1300 26). H0 would be really out of scale.

You can model it out of Evergreen plastics or you photograph at a real graveyard the tombstones, scale it and print it out on cardstock.

At the 2018 Trains at Christmas Show in Sioux Falls, SD we found some of starting materials for the first TT Scale graveyard module. (Likely to be a 2'x2' 90-degree curve module).

Now the question stands: do I make a scenic graveyard, or do I add zombies?

Zombies would make TT the undead scale.

Don't think it would be easy to keep the zombie crud off the tracks or to clean them up! :wtf:

A good starting point might be an older kit version of the Woodland Scenics S-131 cemetery.

This is a white-metal castings set... along with scenery material, and almost NOTHING in the kit except the out-building has any absolute scale. These can often be found at swap meets or on the back shelf of hobby stores...for under $20. Current SLP is more...

We DO have Zombies raising out of the ground on a corner module for the On30 Yosemite Short Line...

We may end up with two graveyards on the layout, a "nice and scenic" one with tributes to friends and family that have passed over the years, and an "undead" one with zombies.

Here is the first bit of supplies for the "nice" graveyard:

The fencing is about 1" tall, which is not too bad for a real fence for a graveyard, at 10 feet tall.
