Vier is the Dutch word for four. Yes, I know it is also the German word for four, but I'm sure that they stole it from the Dutch.

Yes, this is our fourth Gallery devoted to the topic of Mini-Scenes. The great little hobo scene recently posted by Lou brought the topic to mind again.

Perhaps the term "mini-scene" is not well-defined, but judging from the success of our previous three Galleries devoted to this topic, our members "know one when they see it". It is those scenes within scenes’ that visitors love discovering, usually involving such items/settings as little people, vehicles, building interiors, loading docks, alleys, work sites, etc.

So post away.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

I guess I get to start off this month. When I saw the topic two scenes immediately came to mind from the Bangor & Navesink Railroad. The first is a roadside fruit and veggie stand Bob modeled and I shot from an unusual angle:

The next is this section house:

I'll have a look through my photos and see what else I have.

Your first shot is really unusually shot, Drew. And shows a very nice scene.
Nothing against the second one, but it looks more classical.

You don't see very many if any celebrities on model layouts, but here's one on the Suncoast Central.

Workmen on the CN diesel, framed by two snowplows. A digital re-do of a shot I did years ago on slide film:

Talk about your recipe for disaster, moving a safe over Murphy's Law Firm entrance while the black cat is there. And the banana peel on the step waits for some unfortunate person to step on it.

We should have some fun with this month gallery.

It's a sad day in the neighborhood. The guy with the shovel could of waited off to the side for a little while longer.

It is a hot July afternoon. Two couples have decided to paddle down the Seneca River, and are about to pass under the girder bridge supporting the UP's tracks when a 2-10-2 imposes itself on their quiet afternoon.

Hi guys,

Great scenes so far!

Here is a structure at the end of a siding. It appears something is going on inside.

Another view of the same structure, this time with a road switcher idling nearby.
