Circus Diorama - By Don Post

2003 National Convention Winner - Circus/Carnival Category

This diorama by Don Post depicts a 1920s circus loading onto the train for departure after a local engagement. Don used many photos from the book "The Circus Moves By Rail" for inspiration for this scene. Models shown are from Circus Craft, Jordan, Woodland Scenics, Walthers, and details from various sources. Note the "elephant power" being used to pull the wagon up the ramp!
