A big little world

As I mentioned in this month's BRM topic ......

It's a shame we didn't have space to use one or two of the images of the National Brewery Centre's model of Burton a little larger a there's so much detail in there; maybe I'll post them later in the month on here as an extra.

 

Please do make time to go and see this model if you get chance; if it were an exhibition layout (which it never will be as it weighs a ton!) and the trackwork was infilled it would certainly draw the crowds as I can't think of any exhibit which has as many buildings, windows and chimney pots. The model shows Burton as it was on Monday 10th October 1921. Why that day? A local photographer had been out recording town scenes which were invaluable to the modellers who made this impressive panorama.

Brilliant.

 

Anyone fancy photoshopping in some smoke from all those chimneys to add to the atmosphere?

All those beautiful buildings....and then that loco. AAAAaaggghhh!!!

To be fair the needs of running a heavily used push button requires reliability and that can only be found from some continental chassis and the approximations of bodies that can fit; an average UK N/009 RTR chassis would be dead in a month or two.
