I spent a weekend in Hango again, finishing the two new cars (and repainting the first box car in a duller shade of green). Since the weather was sunny and nice (but cold, 7°C, 45°F), I put out the track for a steam run - perhaps the last this year. I shot these images of the train, which starts to look more and more finsihed, even though a lot of the cosmetic details are still missing:

Rounding rhododendrons, hedgehogs and other flora and fauna...

From this high angle, the train looks really toylike - but...

... drop lower with the camera, to the eye-level of an imaginary 1:8 scale onlooker, and the perspective changes dramatically!

Close this window when you are ready...
