That would need more packaging, but postage costs inthe U.K woukld still be
just under £3 small parcel 2nd class ? Much the same as anything other than
an odd animal which wouldn't be ideal for photographing on ones layout.

A few more suggestions before we roll on this glencairn.

How about a flat bogie wagon, each participant, has to add a crate with your layout name on?
Or a low loader and you put your own (interesting) load on each time for the photo shoot?

Or a loch ness monster or a similar little critter. He (Or she) can take rides or just have a selfie on someone's layout, and also is a bit easier across scales.

some of it would depend on how many people are going to take part - if a wagon would be cheaper to send out and about but still has enough room for everyone it should work out - but i had assumed a coach to give enough room for everyone to do something interesting.


Another thought would be something like the container from this wagon: https://www.hattons.co.uk/233726/Dapol_B530_U_Conflat_wagon_SR_with_furniture_container_Southern_Railway_Pre_owned_imperfect/StockDetail.aspx

someone could then do it up in NRM colours

It would depend when it all started as to whether I would be involved. The last two weeks in November I am away.

What about a train spotter?

Can then either use just a figure or also add in a car?

Do it in 00 and then people using N or other scales can use relative positioning to include it on their layouts as well?

Eg figure close to camera with trains in background? & in reverse for larger scales
