Christmas Train Platform (full view) - Early 1950s - Kodachrome
Lionel train setup (platform) with native American village. To the left is an operating cattle car and corral, a new item from Lionel in the early '50s. (Orange car behind the engine). Behind it are classic metal Lionel cars from the 1940s. Note the track switch right behind the fence.
There is an operating signal flagman in the lower right. A giant, way out of scale. (Scale was not an issue here.)
The figures were hand-painted by my mother, one of her hobbies. There are a few lead figures (small) among them. I probably made the teepees.
This was pre-Plasticville, though the covered wagon is obviously plastic. The barn towards the back is still cardboard. From a Kodachrome slide by my dad, Ross J. Care. MAKE SURE TO LOOK AT THE BIGGEST SIZES https://www.flickr.com/photos/39527581@ ... 1/sizes/l/
