Crowley OO Gauge Scenic Model Railway Layout Part 17 Vehicle Selection - Agriculture Related

1:76 scale diecast model tractor
 
Road vehicles selected for a model railway layout can help to reinforce a geographical theme.  The type of vehicle, livery or signage the vehicles carry can all help to create a sense of geographical or regional identity.

Vehicles observed in rural areas are often just as specialised as those associated with city or industrial settings.  As Crowley is a OO gauge model of a scenic country branch line, certain types of road vehicle help to reinforce the rural theme.

This model could be equally useful placed in an agriculture related setting or positioned next to a siding ready to collect goods from OO gauge local pick up freight wagons.

These models have been photographed straight from the box and have not been altered in any way.

Crowley is one of my OO gauge scenic model railway layouts.  To see more model railway layout baseboards I have designed and built visit my website www.brianford.co.uk.
