I know everyone tries to create as much realism as possible when putting together your layouts. But they are certain scenes that are almost comical and odd. Have you included an odd or comical scene to your layout? If so, share it with us in detail or if you have a photo even better...

I haven't even started my layout yet...I have a few ideas of my own.
I was just curious as to what people have put in there layouts.

I have plans to throw some things in. Being a largely open layout I'll have very little room to "super detail" scenes, but my best plan is to have a group of off-roaders with a flipped over vehicle, and in the distance the BNSF security coming.

I've seen the wedding scene before in a model train layout somewhere in a big barn in Lehighton, PA.
I wonder if it's still there!

Nuthin spectacular here, or really out of the ordinary but, while waiting for paint to dry I took one of the "road workers" that is using a jackhammer and cut the jackhammer off to simulate a guy standing there with his thumbs hooked in his pockets looking at a motorcycle. He's wearing a "wife beater" shirt, jeans and boots. I guess I'm trying to replicate a biker type guy. Now, what to do with that yellow hard hat! :confused:

On our club layout we have a cemetery scene and has a funeral going on and if you look at the casket the guys hand is coming out and a guy is trying to hold the lid down as the preacher is speaking....We didn't scratch build . you can actually buy this scene...I will try to get a detailed photos when I take my cam along soon. We plan on a few others too..We try to have some story for each scene even naming some people....We even have the "cheesey" smellin hobos in a box car that rides the rails as in the commercial on TV.

Stay off the tracks!
I visited two different HO scale clubs in Portland, OR this weekend. Both had "kid pleaser" scenes, although some took adults to see... stuff like a circus with a triceratops in the elephant line, the Starship Enterprise circling overhead, an "Area 51 1/2" with multiple UFOs, people re-tarring the roundhouse roof...
