The Starlite Diner was a passenger rail car converted to a diner. Parking was available for six "compact cars only." The Diner had been set up next to O-gauge rail tracks that were actually being used by O-gauge trains that day.

The Rail Town Hardware Store had three fire engines parked outside with ladders run up to its third floor. To the left was Jim's 5¢ and 10¢ store. A sign on the Hardware Store roof read, "Rail Town Hardware Store More Than Hammers!"

In the corner of the table, near where all three tracks curved, stood a watch tower. Parked at the tower's base was a small Airstream travel trailer.

A Greyhound Bus depot was at the end of the road. A bus waited outside the depot. Also parked in the parking lot were two trucks with large missiles on their backs. An O-gauge engine pulled cars past this surreal scene.

A model of a bumper car ride was for sale. For a mere $30, you too could own your own amusement device complete with three bumper cars and three riders. The bumper car ride was labeled, "Bumper Fun."
