They were not.

What I referred to....
adjective : unusual or strange

It is a unusual hobby to make realistic depictions of such sights...and combinations.
I was intrigued, but your expansion about the family background lost my interest...
That is where my "weird" fits....

Actually what you describe exists in reality in some Amish towns today I have been in and driven through...
So, realistic and works in harmony side-by-side in actuality...
The family stuff, not going there.

Continue on please....
Many enjoy what you write and show...including I.

True story...
When I was a child my family on vacation went to Yellowstone & Grand Tetons National Park.
We drove to a town named West Yellowstone for lunch and some shopping one afternoon.
We were warned to not be on the street at 4:00 PM as the cowboys would be coming in as it was Friday afternoon, payday and money to spend...
We were not quite sure what to expect but told to stay, watch but be out of the roadway...
What we saw was the range cowboys ride in on horseback, tie up in front of the numerous saloons and go have a drink with their friends...
Not only did some arrive on horseback but the wagon arrived to replenish supplies needed for out on the range...
The horse and wagon left about a hour later with supplies piled on, a driver/cowboy who had his "beverage" and was headed home...compliments of horse drawn conveyance.
So, story told so you know these places did indeed exist till a few years ago in reality not just make-believe nor a tourist-trap scene of the old-west.
This was the real west...old or not.. it was a real working town where cars, trucks and horses all existed side-by-side daily.

Maybe a place you might enjoy visiting sometime to see what you create as a hobby be a real town of working proportions.

My impressions of cowboys come from what is seen in Hollywood films.

The most surreal part of my layout is the Harley dealership out in the boonies.

I saw the cowboy humor in Blazing Saddles, Mel Brooks, 1974.

Hollywood, folk songs, country western music and Disney inspire much of my wild thoughts.

The reason I made the "family connection" with the wagon driver and the shop owner is that a Harley shop might
not be too crazy about a cowboy on a wagon who was a complete stranger. The older man I have placed by the
front door of the motorcycle shop is also dressed in cowboy garb and I fantasize him to be the shop's owner.
Midnight Cowboy the film makes guys who dress up like a cowboy in a big city to feel unwelcome. I may
have been stereotyping biker types and cowboy types.

I am sure many model railroaders place people figures on their layouts and have fictitious roles for them to assume.

Legal question: Can a wagon driver or a horseback rider on a public roadway be cited for a DUI?

Several times has occurred in Florida.
Some serious charges came from one of those riding and drinking arrest...
Animal cruelty charges and jail time along with $$$$ compensation made the news several times...
When you endanger the public and the animal things can get crazy real fast...

My brother owns a Harley (or two, or three) and has been to some dealerships in some pretty out of the way places. He spends part of the year on rides and travels extensively on his bike.
