[show]The Checker Board clearing was created on the right of the forest area, with backings rented from JC Backings, located on the MGM lot. Brown paper was taped to the bottoms of the landscape drops, painted to tie into the checkerboard main ground cover. The checkerboard pattern was planned in a false perspective grid pattern for the distant checkerboard ground rows to become smaller in scale. This allowed the painted checkerboard scale on the backings to become smaller, as well. The miniature train cars were built by an independent train hobby company, using the train car design provided by the art director Hub Braden. The full scale train compartment was located on the edge of the set for the scene to be filmed. The miniature train track was set up inside this main set filming separately. Upon looking at the exterior of the full scale compartment car, Irwin ordered the exterior to be finished. This had not been planned. Construction and paint finished the exterior prior to filming the scene. The windows and doorway in the compartment interior looked out onto the checkerboard landscape.
