Washington on High Trestle

This photo featuring Pikemaster track was most likely taken on a very nice diorama complete with scenery and a backdrop.  It is unfortunate that it was not used more extensively in advertising.  The only evidence of its use was to illustrate the new Pikemaster track as shown in the 1961-62 catalog below.  Only the area around the nose of the rocket car was used.  You can tell that this is the photo used by the fact that the pattern of the ballast matches.
