(Disneyland, 2002-2012) Renowned miniaturist Robert Olszewski created a series of highly detailed "Z Scale" 1/220th replicas of the buildings on Disneyland's Main Street U.S.A. between 2002 and 2012. Although sold individually, a platform was made that would allow collectors to take the buildings off their bases and replicate the entirety of Main Street, complete with miniature train. Very few of these complete platforms and sets were sold, and even fewer were completed. However, this particular model got into the hands of collector Kevin Doherty, who completed the set and began creating modifications to make the model even more detailed and historically accurate. Doherty added an additional train, both of which stop at the Main Street station, a front gate, additional Monorail lighted track with 2 Monorails, additional figures, backdrops, landscaping, and he enhanced the lighting in the buildings. Doherty also adjusted the lampposts so that they twinkle as if gas-lit, built and added the Grand Canyon Diorama and Primeval World attraction, added the Main Street Electrical Parade in the backlot that lights in over 80 different ways , installed and lighted the Monsanto "Home of the Future", and constructed and powered a track underneath the platform so that the vehicles on Main Street move up and down the street. Doherty also custom built and added many backstage signs and elements such as vehicles from the PeopleMover, Indiana Jones, Matterhorn, Dumbo, Teacups and other attractions. The base itself was modified with custom plaques and buttons for the lighting, trains, Main Street vehicles and custom "Sounds of Main Street" including Main Street Music, Walt explaining Main Street, Jack Wagner’s Train, Gate entrance, Main Street Electrical Parade announcements, and more. This truly one-of-a-kind model measures 72"x35" and comes with a custom plexiglass cover. A piece that can only be appreciated in person, it is an incredible homage to the park by an incredible collector.
