Playing trains - part 1

Posted by Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 27 April 2011 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

In my next few posts we will ‘play trains’ at the Canberra Model Railway Expo. At least here the trains run on time!

These guys take great pride in the miniature world they build. They will keep on working to refine a finished layout to get that final almost real look.

I kinda surprise myself that that my love of this did not survive my childhood . . but somewhere in a box are all the vital ingredients . . now, where did I put that box ?!

The difference between men and boys? The cost of their toys!

Williams from East LaHave, Nova Scotia, Canada

Wonderful shot of every boys dream. When I was driving across country & saw trains I remembered how we all wanted to be a train engineer or a fireman. It seemed funny that being a truck driver didn't hold the same romance?

A very cool angle, giving depth to the train world. I had a school friend whose dad was seriously into this. He built an amazing little village and train depot in their basement. I look forward to this new series. Cheers.
