It really does look like a fun project, and makes me want to do some kind of small loco or railtruck.

Hi Ray.
yes, they are very good they are from the workshop of Volker Bauer fine German craftsmanship. I like his style free and easy they fit right into my world.
The line of figures and pigeons are Mini Art birds, Preiser girl in red top and the two gentlemen are from Mr. Bauer.

This diorama really has character and charisma. It is three dimensional art. -- Russ

just another note.
My background clouds are heading towards the photo collaged approach I would love to get into layering images onto my models but the easiest software is Abode photoshop but expensive for a learner like me. With my rail pick up looking at one of the pictures it is too high my decision to make the vehicle higher by 3 mm has issues, one of the problems for freelance designing.

Kim, I know I've mentioned it a few times here but you can pick up Affinity Photo for either $25 or $50 depending on whether they are running a special and own it forever. They are very good about making improvements and don't charge for them. I now use Affinity instead of Photoshop and, for everything I've tried, it is just as good. If you decide to get it, I'll send you my shortcuts and help you get started. -- Russ

Thanks, Russ.
It will check it out it sounds great will buy it straight out if I like it, Abode thinks they have a monopoly and want a monthly rental.

Hi Kim,
You can test Affinity Photo (and also Designer or Publisher) 90 days for free!
Youíll get a licence code for each program:

https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/supporting-the-creative-community/

The program has almost the same user interface and keyboard shortcuts such as Photoshop - on YouTube there are plenty of tutorials:

I am excited about these programs !!
