It looks very good!
I found only one error which is very easy to fix:
It is NYC, since the switcher is NYC, right?
Then it is not likely that Pennsy tankcar would be there. It was only for non-revenue service. Pennsy bought them very cheap as second hand and used for transport of oil from the oil mixing plant to the depots and for used oil too.
Suggested fix: use a different car instead :grin:

Actually, there is no tankcar on that diorama. Maybe, by browsing through my Flickr stream, you left the album of that diorama and found this picture:

US-Diorama von Jörn Pachl auf Flickr

That scene is not on the diorama but a virtual arrangement I made on a computer by combining photos of real models with a modified screenshot from a computer game. The background scene is from Eastern NJ.

Another picture where the Pennsy tankcar is to be seen, is this one:

This is also not on the diorama but on my operational shunting layout, which has no specific prototype.

However, thak you very much for the information on the tankcar. I future photos I will avoid showing it together with non-Pennsy motive power.

No, it's a storage box of the size 44 cm x 32,5 cm x 17,5 cm (about 17" x 13" x 7"). So, it's much bigger and also more rigid than a shoe box.

Here is a photo I just took at the Lok-n-Roll stand on the modell-hobby-spiel fair in Leipzig, Germany. Tomorrow (Sunday) is the last day of the fair.

With the SW1200 in Pennsy paint livery, I now have a suitable engine that can be used with that tankcar.
