Photo Gallery -- Miniscenes                   

Creating miniscenes is one of my favourite facets of the model railroading hobby. This page shows some of my favourites from my indoor Large Scale layout. I had been building such scenes on my HO and HOn3 layouts many yeatrs before and it is even easier in Large Scale.

There are many miniscenes to draw the eye to specific places on the layout. Mini-scenes shown here include a Christmas party in a remote corner of the railway, beavers chewing a bridge support, a hunter aiming at distant deer, linemen stringing new telegraph wire, diners at an outdoor restaurant, geese escaping from a cage on a baggage cart, a school band practicing, firemen washing the fire truck, a biker gang partying and holding up traffic, a wingwalker on a biplane, a traffic accident with nurse and ambulance,..... If you can dream it, you can make it come alive on your railroad.
