My friend, B. Smith, has some great cars on his layout. His layout is set in 1990 and his cars evoke that era very nicely, even if a few of them look a tad old. However, it was not uncommon to see a lot of older cars in rural areas in the US. My slides from the late 70s and early 80s, feature a number of cars from the 1960s and a few from the 1950s.
I asked him to share a few everyday scenes on his LCN RR. Note what a big difference his cars make in enhancing the realism and evoking his era. (All photos by B. Smith)
These cars are made by NEO. They are the best cars (1/87 scale) that we have found. I have a number of them ready to hit the road on my layout. We purchase them from American Excellence.
