Need suggestions, installing window glazing on Playmobil windows using clear plastic sheets, the window is a double hung and the lower window will move up and down in front of the upper window, there isn't room for the movable one to move up and down if there is glazing on it. The window will be partially open on some and others will be all the way the open ? is should I put glazing on the top fixed window and just on the part of the lower window that is not in the area of the top window? All suggestions appreciated, Bill

If you can get hold of them glass for glass slides is nice and thin and may work for smaller sized windows.

Could you show a picture of which windows you are doing? There are a lot of different kinds of playmobil train windows. I would hate to cut glass. I've used clear plastic since it's easy to cut and the lighter weight might be less strain on the mild glues I use for preservation of the playmobil plastic.

I find glazing windows is a bit of a pane.

Try using double sided sticky tape.

For real glass use 2.5 x 2.5 photo slide glass and Canopy glue to fix it dries clear.

As said it depends on the size and if what you can get will work in that respect, cutting glass slide would be an issue.
