CatzPaw Innovations have researched multiple methods of moving figures through scenery. CatzPaw is now in the final development stage of their InvisaTrax™ Transport System. InvisaTrax makes it possible to move things! Lots of things, not just Big Foot. The linked-to web site shows all of the components of their system, and includes demonstration videos. Speed and direction of the animation is controllable. The included speed controller can be replaced with a DCC controller to control the speed and direction from your throttle.
You can help support this project by pledging a dollar amount, or by pledging the amount for a specific starter system (early-bird specials are in effect now). Be sure to thoroughly read the linked-to page to learn about all of the possibilities of this project.

NASG Eastern VP, Darby Marriott, learned of this company. They specialize in very accurate roadway and railroad signs. The new owner (as of last year) has decided to expand the product line into all model railroading scales, including S. Their signs are made from a durable, non-flaking, heavy-weight paper product. Prototypes are made on a mathematically-derived scale based on research of original signage size. In other words, they are very accurate. They have a page on how to unpack their packages and recommendations for how to install them on your layout, diorama, or module. For their S-scale models, the metal post versions are made of aluminum. A couple of examples are shown here, but be sure to click the images to view their entire S-scale collection (too many to list individually here).
Many of you have heard of SceniKing, but they now have a dedicated page and a large number of photo-realistic backdrops in S-scale. We are always excited when a company finally officially recognizes S-scale. The owner, Les, shares on that page that he received his first American Flyer set for Christmas in 1950, so he has his roots in S.
