@beardog was gracious enough to send my boys figures to keep them occupied when playing on the layout. A few of them took up residence near the loading dock. Thank you Beardog!

You could have a steam train, if you'd just lay down your tracks.

Frank,

I loved the hoops after zooming in on your second photo.  What a great action scene.  And, yes, the motocycles and their envirnoment is just an amazing vignette.  The framing of that photo is outstanding too, specially with the flowering tree in the fore corner to draw your eye tomthe lin of bikes.  I want to live in so many of your wonderful worlds.

All,

As one of those of us without the time and space for a real layout, I'm really enjoying this thread!  Keep th great ohitos and wonderful worlds coming!

TomlinsonRunRR, Thank you, so much , for expressing your approval of that area of my layout. It was especially kind of you to articulate the specifics that earned your particular notice. It's very enjoyable for me when my fellow hobbyists voice their positive regard for work I myself enjoyed doing and enjoy having.

My sincere Thanks, also, to Arnold D. Cribari . You always have such pleasant and interesting comments about my modeling, that I look forward when I see your name on a posting that relates to my modeling.Thank you, again, for your many kindnesses in this regard.

My Thanks, also, to these voices who sent me Likes for this motorcycle scene in Moon Township. Thank you, BAR GP7 #63; Arnold D. Cribari; SouthernMike; MELGAR; Lou N.

Maybe it would be your last meal . Thanks for the compliment.

Excellent, watched it a couple times, and probably will watch it again a couple more times.

Speaking of your little mountain sculptor, my first cousin, Camille, is married to Lou DelBianco, who is the grandson of the principal carver of Mount Rushmore, Luigi Del Bianco. So your little guy could be Luigi Del Blanco in O Scale.

Lou has recently appeared on the CBS Sunday Morning Show regarding his grandfather, Luigi, who was as great sculptor.  Luigi worked with another great sculptor by the name of Borglan and about 400 other men who created Mt. Rushmore, which I believe is one of the great wonders of the World. Lou Del Biuanco has also written a book entitled Out of My. Rushmore's Shadow that tells the story of his grandfather. The book has received considerable acclaim.

Wouldn't it be great for someone to create Mt Rushmore In O Scale on their train layout!

Patrick, I particularly love your little guy riding the bicycle, which I also have on my layout.

Paul, WHY the "Youngstown and Southern"?????  In NH you are a few miles away from "Murdertown USA."

Ron

Outstanding, Jerrman! But how did you ever get those speaker poles modeled??!!! mceclip1They are the obligatory perfect touch! And I can easily recall all the other features you've so faithfully reproduced of such popular places, back in the 60's. The entire Pittsburgh area had them, and they were very well-attended, indeed.

Thank you GandyDancer and Monsoon. Frank, I figured someone (with your level of attention to detail) would notice the speakers. Dave Hikel (Hikel O Gauge) printed them on his 3D printer. Now, that was a nice feat but, wiring them with some thread to the speakers on the car door (which you can just about see if you blow up the image of the convertible) had me testing my level of patience since the cars, screen and scenery were already in place. Thanks for noticing and the compliments.

I agree and those beautiful O Scale cars tend to cost a pretty penny.

Thanks for the comments, Melgar and Arnold. It's one of my favorite scenes on the layout and visitors never tire of seeing it and reminding themselves of when drive-ins were king. 

On this Sunday, a visit from Jesus - Happy Easter and praise the Lord!Jesus in Irishville
