    take a smoke unit out of an o scale engine, hide it in the scene. you can turn them up and down for more or less smoke.

    Looks really good and the effect is staggering! Is this actually on the layout or a diarama?

    Some (if not all of you ) may have seen this when I posted it but thought given the topic here I would post a couple pictures again. This one was not staged on the layout.

    The wreck!

    You say a buffalo was the suspected cause, eh? Clearly it was a smart buffalo; it ran away and is nowhere to be seen... sign1 (Either that, or it's somewhere underneath the pileup it caused) :rolleyes:
