This was the display I was working on in some the most recent How-To videos that I posted.

My client sent me a few photos of the display now that it arrive unharmed 1000 miles away. You may identify some of his equipment. It really came out nice and his equipment looks great on it.

I thought some might enjoy to see how a display went from start to finish.

Yup, agree with Woodie 100%. :thumb:

 What scale is that in. I know it was bigger than O scale if I recollect. The tell tail sign is the coupler on the switcher.

Thanks guys.

I built the display to be 1:48 and I understand his train stuff is a mix of 2 and 3 rail O Scale, Lionel etc.

As for the die cast construction equip, I would imagine 1:48, 1:43 or even 1:50 but I can bet it is expensive stuff. Either way, it sure is impressive stuff.

The NORSCOTT equipment shown is 1:50 scale. Close enough for government work.
