Paul, I love the night scene and all the busses! Looks great! What is really impressive is the EYHOUND station!

Lee, don't forget if your interested drop me a line!

Thanks, Mike...I'm not quick enough with the shutter button any more to caption the sign as it's fully lighted...the sign goes from a single letter lite to additional lights in sequence one at a time until all letters are lite...then the sequence starts all over again!  Did I say that right...lol

I'll try again to get the whole sign lighted...

Shasta, Gotta love the Disney “Cars” theme! Somebody needs to have a talk with the person in the greenish car about railroad safety! LoL The blue auto carrier is awesome.

Sorry for the delay, I work out of town couldn't remember for sure what it was. It's a Franklin Mint that I got 1632506526458260300552at discount because there was no box and a paint rub on the roof. It is a Mercury Monterey not sure of the year as the invoice does not specify that.1632506095129799582835

Sorry Western Pacific 2217, someone had asked if that was a Chevy apparently a different thread. Answered you without reading the post through. I was collecting The Cars Land buildings with the intent to make a module. And as seems to be typical with Disney they stopped the series before they finished with all the pieces. I have used them as a temporary fill to my one turned helix. The grand kids really like them. When the three-year-old first saw them he said" oh Disneyland" after looking around for a couple of minutes then ask " where are the rides?"

This a 1949 through 51.  Mercury redesigned the body in 52.   The 49 was a very big seller, it was the next step up from the best selling 49 Ford', and  considered and advertised as a luxury car. The 4 door model was the biggest seller..

Franklin Mint did a nice job on their "Classic Cars of The 50' (and 60"s) probably twenty years ago.  Seem to recall the original release of the cars was $50 each...during the great recession back in 2008 and forward for a few years, I bought a few like Shasta mentions for a deal. The open hood and open doors feature was a winner, and the engine under the hood looks realistic...
