A Series of Animated Dioramas

No, this isn't another "last layout" layout, although it may seem that way. This is a collection of N Scale dioramas built from bits and pieces of the decommissioned White River & Northern X as well as other recent layouts and projects. While trying to finish the WR&N X, I discovered something more satisfying than building layouts.

The factor that most shapes these dioramas is what items and materials I have on hand; it's highly unlikely I'll buy anything for them, much as I might like to. It would be far too easy for me to go nuts and plan/start a great many dioramas based on stuff I don't have! I want to stick with what I've got so I can finish as many as possible in the little time I have remaining.

Originally I had over a dozen dioramas planned. But after I started working on a few, I realized I probably wouldn't live long enough to finish even half of them. So I cut the list back to the most interesting ones—which, if I'm honest, is fluid. Consequently, the list is always in flux, so please stop back often.
