MFMR Convention 2011 – Day 3

Sunday was a bit more relaxing.  Duane gave us a personal tour of the museum, including showing us some of the items that have not been put on display yet.  Duane is building a very impression recreation of the railroad on the south shore of Nova Scotia in “S” scale.  If you are ever in the area the museum should be a definite stop on your itinerary.

After lunch we stopped in to Chester, Nova Scotia to visit David Miller’s very impressive HO layout.  Duane has been helping David with some of the scenery and detail work on this layout.  It was impossible to see every detail in the hour or so that we were there.  Duane was continually pointing out tiny details that most people would overlook but were very important pieces of the scene.  Things like a scratch built circular saw on a sheet of plywood near a building being constructed (plus all the other usual items you would find near a building being constructed, tiny birds “flying” over the tree tops and sitting on things were some of the items.  See if you can spot more of these tiny details in the photos (below)
