Maps and imagineering
Here is an example of excellent imagineering and a map used to great effect. It is by P.D.Hancock who is possibly to model railways what Featherstone is to wargaming. He created a fantastic layout and based it in an extension of South East Scotland-
Yesterday saw no progress in painting or modelling but some reading or plan was done. I read up about the practicality involved in making an outdoor railway and the rules of dba v3 which is a version new to me. As the zoom games are to be regular in the current situation I need to get a better handle on the updates. Reading wrg prose is not the easiest thing to do especially on a very warm day!
Here is a passenger’s or trains eye view of where the line will run. I like the almost overgrown feel to it. In my mind the railway is a liminal space between countryside and coast, town and country or even the everyday and faerie!
