On my layout it's always the summer of 1943. That means few civilian vehicles and the military ones all have stateside early markings...
the civilian ones all have correct county/year markings on the license plates, too.






I need to get some better shots of some of the others eventually. I rotate the civilian ones through the layout from time to time, but the Army vehicles usually stay on the layout in various localles.

These are very important details that many vehicles lack on a MRR.  We have a kerosene reservoir next to our house, yes it was built before electricity was here, where the people who lived here in the late 1960s and early 70s threw their old plates when they got their new ones each year.  So we now have a collection of VA plates.  So, my point, plates alone can and did in the way back dictate a date on your railroad.  Good job Lee.

Thanks, Steven!
