Why is that guy taking a nap in the bleachers? 

Because he was up late last night watching a game under the lights that went into extra innings:

Does anyone else have an O Gauge baseball team my guys can play a game with? Better hurry up and show me before we all disappear into the cornfield.

Those are the correct dimensions of Yankee stadium down the left field line (301 feet) and straight away left field (402 feet) when Don Larsen pitched a perfect game in the World Series in 1956. I was 5 years old then and if you look carefully you can see me sitting in the stands.😀

Sometimes a scene with not to many LPs tell a story. Here it is Saturday morning, most are sleeping in late, a few people driving on a humid summer morning to work, pick up supplies, or just a morning drive in their convertibles. The corner Ice Cream shop is open and already has a customer who is enjoying the morning and watching the cars go by. At the Sinclair Gas Station, full service, Joe Oaks is filling the tank of my dads new 56 Ford. Joe has an antique he's been working on for months, hoping to get it ready by August for the coming festival. Behind one can see the Agar refrigerated cars going to the towns new plant site, Agar Ham processing plant. Its a time, place, and repeated over almost every weekend in a small town I grew up with.

I was thinking to ask the same thing. Not just the western riders, but all of Frank's figures are interesting and often appear unique.

My guess is that Frank has a very good eye for finding his little people at train shows.

Arnold D. Cribari, (Gulp) ... you got me smiling ear-to-ear with that comment, sir. Thank you so very  much.  It's especially nice when one talks the same creative language as somebody else and wins their approval. I am very grateful for your feedback and your kindness in taking the time to do so.

PCRR Dave. They are hand-painted imports, metal, that Roy Baker sells. The latest number I have for him is (I am trying to read it carefully on a note he sent me recently : 1-845-887-0079).  He was having some trouble with his phone. Let me know if you are not able to get thru to him via the # I provided here.

Zeke/ Sean, Truly exceptional of you to say that. Thank you. But any good school for such craftwork would need you there as a professor ! And  I agree with Arnold , but I would add that your handsome vignettes have a distinct atmosphere and intimacy to them, uniquely their own, in my viewpoint.

I enjoy seeing all these little scenes. I have to say putting people on a layout really starts making seem more alive. Once I do start getting more scenery done I will more than likely end up putting some images up. Currently mine looks more like a Post-Apocalyptic world with not people no vehicles very few buildings, and a lot of brown. Though Post-Apocalyptic might be fun if you could do it right, but that would require some heavy weathering of engines and rolling stock to look right.

Though back on topic, These are all very well done. Something I will pursue toward in the future.

   A lot of this stuff comes in from Great Brit, others came from sand castings we did as young boys in the late 40's thru the 60's.  Man I wish I still had all those cool Army and Navy lead figures I made and painted up as a boy.  Unfortunately mom gave them away when I was drafted, along with some other pretty cool train accessories.

All fun scenes. Love the one with the couple necking in the antique car.

In my little world, I leave this troubled world behind.

I can smell the bacon cooking and the coffee outside that diner:

a 2016 Christmas layout scene - Hope that it's obvious that it's a Halloween scene.  Mostly, but not entirely, Homies.

I have a zillion scenes with figures that I could share.  I just picked this scene for no particular reason.

Walt, That is a fun idea, having Halloween revelers out walking their neighborhood, as a scene on a layout! Really clever! Something I had never seen previously on anybody's layout. Our layouts become reminders of so many things from our enjoyable youth that your modeling there has reminded me of how much fun it was to go door-to-door in our little suburb (seen here),millerave back when I was a boy in the 50's. Thanks for rekindling those memories!

Frank,

First off, thanks.  That image you included looks a lot like a street one over from my uncle's in Duquesne.

Duquesne Place?  The photo is of the 100 block on Miller Avenue. cbk

One over is either Harden Ave. or, in the other direction, toward Kennywood, is Herman Ave.

That's part of my childhood hometown neighborhood, in real life.

Those hometown neighborhoods from long ago always remain special.

That street looks familiar. It looks alot like the streets in Port Vue, where I grew up.
