There is a member at RR-Line that wil be building this. I posted a video by Luke Towan (a very outstanding modeler from down under) on this system. Mangorail does add a new dimension to a layout. I hope you enjoy, his work is so realistic it is scary. You can click on the button to skip the commercial.

Started to watch it but noticed it is quite lengthy, so I'll go back when I have some more time. But you're right, it's so realistic you have to do a double-take to be sure of what you're looking at.
I fast-forwarded through the dull parts, like building the store, but there were some good scenicing methods covered and the finished product looks very convincing.  Replicating it on a fair-size layout might be a bit more involved, but the techniques are useful for creating points of interest.

Did anybody notice the guy on the bike is actually pedaling it? Big Grin

Yeah, I noticed, but expected to see someone chasing him...he was pedalling like a madman!

That was someone in the Jeep chasing him, both disappeared somewhere (maybe a sinkhole), that's why the guy in the Bobcat came to get them out....

I've seen this on television many times, especially on large layouts in Germany and the Netherlands.  Good way to add moving vehicles if you model in the current time period.
