The Fiddletown movie


Here’s a little movie of the Fiddletown & Copperopolis project I made in 2014. This is an HOn30 display layout made for MiniTrains in Germany. It was based on the Carl Fallberg railroad cartoons that appeared in Railroad magazine in the 1940's and 50's.

I spent about six month designing and building the project. I used mostly unorthodox techniques to achieve lightweight scenery - it had to be shipped to Germany and lugged around Europe to various train shows. I ran the little trains over 40 hours continuously to make sure they were okay for an all-day show.

  2. That's fantastic. I love how it uses two illusions: 1. The train has a destination (it doesn't) and 2. The water source for each of the waterfalls is the same oozing geyser atop the hill. Despite all that, it's fun to look at.
