Warren created this shadowbox style of display layout to show what one can do with Sn2. The concept was based on the Mackenzie brothers' Sn3 display layout that most have seen at Sn3 Symposiums.
The scenery was made out of pink insulation foam and Sculptamold.
The locomotives all have LEDs and DCC installed, and were converted from HOn3 to Sn2. All rolling stock is scratchbuilt.
The trees are a mixture of Super Trees (with ground foam), Mackenzie trees, and scratchbuilt. Lighting is done with 100W CFL. The layout can be dismantled in sections for transportation. It has built-in support for stanchions/roping for public display.
Warren provided us with these two videos he shot of his layout.
