HO figures

Miniature figures will play an important role in establishing the era and the atmosphere (late 1950s/urban/French) of the layout. I'd like to have commuters making their way to the station early evening, perhaps calling in at a little bar/cafe before boarding their train; the weather perhaps autumnal.

As I said in an earlier blog, I think many model railway layouts are let down by the glossy plasticness of their figures. Hope I don't fall into the same trap.

And how's this for a blast from the past?

Daft Punk

Cold, wet, wintry drive home along the M74 (the city section) but Daft Punk got my circulation going and my spirits up.

Post-script to yesterday's comments on Icons.

You can get very portable icons - they cost just a few pounds/euros.

The three sectioned example came from the Serbian-Orthodox Church in St Andrews, just outside Budapest.

 I can't find our photos of the inside of the church but it did not look too dissimilar from this church interior from somewhere else in Hungary.
