Rust Belt Junction Diorama

Deutsche Version

This diorama, I made as a stay-at-home project during the COVID-19 pandemic curfew in spring 2020. It was designed to fit into an office storage box of which the cover is used as a backdrop.

The diorama shows a fictitious scene with an old station depot located at a junction at the edge of an industrial area somewhere in the Rust Belt in the 1960s. The interlocking limits controlled by the tower near the depot are only partly shown. The map below shows the cutout to be seen on the diorama. The turnouts and interlocking signals are outside the modelled scene, only the train order signal is present there.

While the depot is a laser-cut kit, the tower is a resin model.

The picture below is linked with a Flickr album on this diorama.
