Information edited by Sakatsu Gallery

The time was the end of the Pacific War and the confusion of the postwar period. The locomotive depot is for private railway type steamers, but petrol cars were introduced in the Showa recession.
However, gasoline became unobtainable in the war time, and it is a setting of the depot of the car which has been converted into the substitute fuel car.

This is the first time I have ever seen a car in a garage.

The helter-skelter tracks are made of No. 70 flexible wire, and I deliberately bent them every 120mm to make them look like they are bending out of joint.
The roof of the depot is painted in Pacific War camouflage, with 1mm holes pockmarked by air raid gunfire.

The above is from this work "Warped Locomotive Depot" which appeared in RM MODELS No.213. A related article about a diesel locomotive equipped with a charcoal gas kiln appeared in the same issue, No. 211.
