Do you have the answers to some of these perplexing questions about the 2nd floor Gilbert Hall of Science Layout?
1. Can you identify the individuals in these photos? Click on the images for a bigger view.
|Individual on right may be Frank Castiglione based on the fact that he is working on scenery.||Both of these individuals are not easily identifiable due to their faces being hidden, but if you have some ideas please let me know||This gentleman is also pictured in an article about Ray Palumbo and his work on Gilbert display layouts. The photo is in the November 2010 issue of Classic Toy Trains on page 70. He is at the far left of what could best be called the middle row. In any case, I think he may be the same individual pictured on the left in the far left photo on this page, based on his very dirty lower portion of his coveralls.|
2. Did the real water lake disappear at some point as a result of later revisions? Was it during the 1953 revisions when the ferry could no longer operate because of the obstructions of the trestle bridge supports? That might have also made sense because the track running under the waterfall would have been a risky thing to do with real water running over the fall.
