Hello

I will change the tires to be compressed..
This really is a detail I missed...

I am ading more rolling stock to my small world.
I recently bought a WWII plastic car kit. Could be that this one found its way to asia somehow during the wartime.
Now the car will serve just for civilisans..

Maybe you should add a traffic light or all the vehicles will get stuck in a traffic jam! -- Russ

Progress on my railcar. I am adding a small passenger car:





Not ready yet...but hope to finish it today.

There is something similar I once saw on a picture of the famous Darjeeling Himalayan Railway.
A small car behind the train for the train crew. Unfortunately I do not find the original...

The combination of vehicle and trailer has a lot of character. -- Russ

Excellent additions to your diorama. For a minute I thought the umbrella frame in the top photo of the railcar trailer was an antenna, perhaps providing wifi for the upscale passengers  Smiley

Bill is being very naughty but, since several hours have gone by, he may leave the corner. The new railcar and trailer suit the diorama very well. Satisfactory. -- Russ

Thank you, Thomas. Now to get in line to buy a ticket to ride under the anten..., er, I mean, umbrella.
A good addition to your stable of rail vehicles!
