 At least the protagonists and their rides do:




I just build the handcar from 7777 and staged the scene.

I suspect that replies will depend on whether one grew up in the "4-wide cars" era or afterward.  I personally love the juxtaposition of Bill & Mary meeting up with the handcar operator!  I remember being continually enthralled with my copy of #6000, wishing I had the amount of bricks to set up displays like that when I was young.  True, it doesn't compare to today's more complex trains, cars, etc. - but really, should it?  I see it as a celebration of 1980s building and nostalgia for the simpler stuff back then, which I wholeheartedly appreciate having grown up in that era.  I say bravo for building this scene - let it spark imaginations today like the books did nearly 40 years ago!
