That is cool! The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania has a nice collection of steam (along with other rolling stock), but I don't think it matches that.

Sometimes, people knowing this diorama just from pictures wonder what's inside the small yard behind the wooden fence next to the main building. While it's a bit tricky to peek into the yard with a big camera, a cell phone camera does a good job for this purpose.

They could put it inside when the wooden fence was not built yet. :wink:
But I wonder how they get it OUT now, if they need it! :lol:

P.S. Very nice episode. Bu as concerns car... It is an old Rokal "generic" car, I suppose? Looks quite unrealistic and rough, Why not order resin cast 1947 Chevrolet kit from Mini-Things, or maybe ask RailTT for some defective body?..

I bought this car in a slightly damaged state in the 'used stuff' section of a Berlin model railway shop. Don't know who made it. While it looks quite simple, I thought it might still work for a scrap yard of something like that. So, it finally landed on this diorama. However, if I wanted, it could be easily replaced by something else.
