I noticed the Bedford Falls Hardware sign; So is this going to be a park (or ride) based on "It's A Wonderful Life"?

Snow is amazing!
Can't wait to see how this progresses! I love old-fashion Main Street designs!

Good catch, JB! Yes, and yes.

I have actually done a ton of research and am recreating Bedford Falls as closely as practical. Of course, the whole thing was a set on the RKO backlot. Only one building in the entire movie was real, the Martini "castle" in Bailey park. The gym of Beverly Hills High School is where the swimming pool scenes were filmed.

Here's a pic of the old RKO backlot small town street;



The tall building is the Anderson department store where the Bailey Building and Loan occupies the second floor.

That house!   The scale is perfect

Love the snow on the road in the top shot, I'm going to make a suggestion of using the snow pieces to add a few heaps on the sidewalks where maybe they shoveled up against the buildings and around the lightposts and stuff... ?

Wow, there's more to Bedford Falls main street than I thought. It's rather extensive.

Yes the main street does look bigger then meets the eye. I still can't get over the realism with the snow in the road and sidewalks.
