Field of Dreams
The first of the dioramas was "born" on 8 September 2021 as I chopped up the White River & Northern X. Except for the fascia and a few bits of scenery along the edges, it is completely finished.
Scenes and Details
The diorama has a built-in power supply, comprised of 3 D-cells in a holder that fits into the diorama behind the mill; the supply is wired to provide 1.5, 3, and 4.5 VDC as needed by the various animations. A small panel next to the power supply has six switches to control the animations.
Here are "final install" videos showing the animations in their finished settings.
