    I am starting a new small lima bean shaped layout that folds up into a breif case. I wanted to build a layout for my three little cousins. I wanted to at least bring it to them, they live in kansas. The idea came from an old thomas train thing i once had that folded up. It will be a prarie type layout because i wanted something easy and little kid safer. I think I am going to get some fake fur for the prarie grass. I will also see if I can get some Indians, and settlers with covered wagons. Here is a sketchup model. As you can see the two sides fold in and up to rest on top of the middle section. I will get some latches to secure it. I just realised I messed up on the model, the groves that allow the side sections to sit flush when folded up should beflush with the top of the apron piece not the bottom

    Hey, Collyn. Musket Miniatures makes figures and covered wagons that would be appropriate. I don't know about the Indians, but 10 mm scale wargaming figures can be used for N scale, you might try to find some of those.
