I've been trying to figure out how to fill a
space on my layout and someone suggested a playground. I know I've seen playground equipment before but I can't find any with google right now. Anyone know of a source for playground equipment.

Leo,

I seem to recall a playground set that Bachmann used to produce. Also check Woodland Scenics, Prieser and Wiking among others.

Preiser made a set but don't if they still sell it. I got one when I bought a box in an estate sale. It has a slide, merry-go-round and see-saw and I think some children.

Plastruct has some items. A little crude, but a start.

I have seen a module or two with a neat mini-scene. Kid flying a control-line model plane that flies around and around in a circle. Today it is about all RC flying but back in transition era, the control line planes were commonly seen. N scale model of kid flying control-line plane in a circle wouldn't be too hard, N scale model of RC flying would be hard to pull off.

Another roundy-round item that wouldn't be hard to model would be a hand-operated playground merry-go-round (not the amusement park variety with horses but the kind you run by push power.) Teeter-totter seesawing up and down would take a little tricky gear work but wouldn't it be neat?

Wish I could I say I have built all these but they are just an idea. But you have to start with an idea. It took me 25 years and four tries before I figured out how to build an N scale model of an electric train layout....and only non-operating so far.
