The carnival.

 

The carnival is coming in town. Signs are posted throughout the city and everyone is looking forward to the few days of enjoyment.

A few days ahead some of the trucks enter the city on there way to the parking lot where they will build the carnival. The attractions and rides are build up and mobile homes are set up.

Local people are hired to help every visitor.

In the future I describe the making of my carnival, which will be on my Belgium layout.


 

The whole family will have fun, young children are riding the kiddy rides, older kids the faster rides. Mom and dad are in the ferry wheel, while the little ones enjoy candy.
 

Before you know the carnival is over with and you have to wait a year for the next one, unless you go to an other city. But we live in our miniature city and the carnival will stay here all the time.

A carnival can be placed on a small corner of the layout, although new a days there are many model carnival accessories, enough to make a separate layout.

In 1985 Faller introduced a limited run ferry wheel. By now Faller has such a huge assortment of carnival products, it becomes a separate section of there catalogue. Kibri and Vollmer have some carnival models as well. In the USA, the company IHC also sells carnival products. Most of those carnival models can be powered with small motors, especially the Faller line of models. When small lights are installed it becomes spectacular sight.
