Model Update 9/16



I found some vintage HO scale cars on Ebay to populate the parking lot. 


Again, you can see these cars parked in various places on the original EPCOT/Progress City model.


That rectangular space will be the home of the Amazing Sign.


I also got my hands on a vintage HO scale covered wagon for the prairie area. The journey west was fraught with hardship. A "flat tire" could mean the end for most settlers. Here we see an abandoned wagon, the victim of misfortune. 



The Mine Train track has been raised to 10 ft above the ground and the golf holes have been laid out to scale.

  1. With modern accessibility codes, how easy it is to build an elevated train track? Will you be required to have a bunch of stop places along the way where people could get off in case of an emergency, or is 10 feet low enough you don't have to?

  2. At 10', you could potentially have a mobile emergency disembarking apparatus (rolling stairs) in case of engine issues. Love the vintage models!
