Hey Gang,

Here are the Final Pictures of my diorama that incorporated the SierraWest Tractor Repair Shed and Boiler-House Kits - O Scale. It won 2nd place in the Diorama Category at the 2017 Narrow Gauge Convention in Denver and I plan to bring it to Altoona, PA in November for the Fine Scale Model Railroader Expo. The size of the Diorama is 26 inches by 26 inches. It contains 15 LEDs with two Simulators - The first Simulator is a flickering Welding Light that runs for 30 seconds and then turns of for 90 seconds before repeating and the other Simulator is for burning coals that can be found in the Blacksmith Hearth. The Quad Nash Truck seen on the diorama has both front and rear working lights.

Thanks for Looking!
Alan

PS - A Special Thanks to Brett Gallant of SierraWest for adding his "Magic Touch" to my Diorama Photos by making them look like they are right out of 1929.

Hi Alan, The pictures are incredible. Thanks Brett.
The diorama also looked great on your kitchen island. I like the red knobs. Wolf in our kitchen.

Alan,

Wow! Now that's what a ultimate goal in modeling should be.

Fantastic pics and presentation as well. Those pics make me want to go out & build my own tractor scene.

Kind of like when I go & see the cannonball run movie, afterwards I want to drive home fast! ha.

Great pics sir. Thanx Thom...

Thanks for all the nice comments. Yep, I'll post the un-screened photos in a few days. Having trouble with Photobucket tonite. In the mean time if you want to see them, I posted them over on the SierraWest site.
