Slimmed Down Blog

It had been my intention to reduce the frequency of this blog to once a week, say a Sunday, and focus more on the model railway aspect - starting today.

Unfortunately, this intention has coincided with a very busy weekend and so there's only time to include a few photographs.

I hope the photographs will demonstrate the rightness of my decision to introduce a raised section to the model railway diorama.

Hitherto, my thinking had conceived of the town surrounding the railway station as being all on the one level - a kind of 3D map. How unrealistic! No town is completely on the flat; and reflecting that undulation should increase the visual power of the model.

A modest raised section of about 1.5cm, achieved by sitting a row of card buildings across from the front of the station upon some plywood.






The card buildings themselves are still to be glued together.
