    Hi Gang
    I was wonderin what kind/brand of vehicles you guys use for track scenery. I have found many Matchbox, Hot Wheels, JL and some model railroad vehicles work quite well. I'll try and get some pics of what I have and post them soon. Lets see what ya have!

    Larry, because I deal with a lot of dynamic scenery I try to keep it all in scale, which means a lot of HO railroading stuff. My figures are all true HO, vehicles, buildings built to HO scale, everything. My favorite source for all of this is Hobbylinc (www.hobbylinc.com) and they have just about anything in any time period you may want. Now that does mean the 1/76th scale (approx) T-jets have to measure up to the 1/87th scale HO stuff but when viewed as a forced perspective it's not nearly as bad as, say, trying to view a 1/64th scale XT in the same settings.
