This personal trainer has a starring spot on the layout. We built him a gym where he can pump iron, and his lovely workout partners can work on their sit-ups and waist turns. In the background, a rousing tune keeps everyone going. This methodology could easily be extended to any kind of animated figures for a variety of exciting scenes on your model railroad or display.
The animated gym runs on low voltage DC using a commercial grade, easily replaceable, display motor for long life. All lighting is miniature fluorescent.
This animation is part of the Aventura Mall Holiday Layout.
