For what it does, the 'wobbleyness' works and works well.
And I'm not entirely sure what words to pin on that concept.

One idea within that concept that I can pin words on,
is how the wobbleyness of the railway model separates it from the supporting structure.

The railway is itself, its own thing,
the structure which keeps it off the floor is something else,
and easier to put out of mind in order to focus on the railway model alone.

Si.

It seems to me I said this once upon a time, the first time I saw this particular layout...

It is unique, even fascinating... Not sure I would build like that...
But it does have something to it that I find hard to put in to words...

There is something there that just kind of screams at you...
You like me, you know you do, you should build me, you know you should...  :bang:

Theres them voices in my head again... stop it stop it.....................  :)

Hi all,

Eamonn Seddon's "Toternhoe Minerals" still exists,
and was on display in Tasmania in 2015, when I last saw it
(photos may be available on here if requested).
It is Eamonn's home layout.

John Dennis's "Dutton Bay Tramway" still exists,
but is currently not in use.

I think David Fletcher's stuff is still running,
and he has had articles on Baldwin paint schemes regularly published,
in the "Narrow Gauge DownUnder" magazine.

I'm not sure of the status of the rest of them,
remember they first surfaced on here way back in 2007.

There have been a few Australian Narrow Gauge Conventions since 2007
(every 2 years, with the last one in Easter 2019).

I got to most them since then.
The modelling is still just as inspirational.

I would love to see some more photos of 'Toternhoe Minerals'.  :thumb:

It actually breaks quite a few BIG 'RULES', about what you should or shouldn't do !  :old dude:


Quite apart from the 'wobbly' baseboard, which I can't say I can ever recall seeing before ...

... the lighting is unashamedly 'unrealistic' ! :!: ... But actually somehow quite attractive !  :)


Which immediately brings to mind the look of, possibly typical, 'live theatre' lighting ...

... the comparison having already been made, in reference to the 'deep grey landscaping' :-  



" ... every thing not on the landscaping is painted a deep grey,

as the use in live theatre to focus the attention on the stage. "



Also the unashamedly 'unrealistic' backdrop, is also the same 'deep grey' ... Attractive as well !  :)


What IS THERE, is obviously some great model making & not afraid to be a bit 'different' !  L:

Folk clearly like its kinda unique 'look' ... Question is, would anyone copy that 'look' ?  ???



:moose:



Si.

Hi John  :wave:

Any luck trawling through the dusty Garaty archives ?  :old dude:

I'd love to see a few more snaps from Toternhoe !  :bg:
