US trolley line/inter-urban 1940’s –“Bedford Falls Crossing” with back yard supplies shop & “victory garden.” using a base (1) 410 x 350 ex Weyford scenic board
A fictitious location in small town upstate New York. Its still wartime but close to VE day. Americans are already awaiting the end of rationing. No 8 year wait for them! They travel to work each day by trolley into a nearby city or catch the inter-urban in 20 years it will all be gone and the car will be king.
7th August The diorama base has been selected- and work will soon start on the scenic work.
26th November The name & location changed following a showing of “Its a Wonderful Life” reminded me that this was a good name for an American set layout. As film buff’s will know Bedford Falls isn’t shown with any trolley cars, but the main street had a central area of trees and grass which would have made an ideal “reserved track” area. The town is shown having a railroad depot so the crossing of railroad tracks(NYC?) would be involved.
