Riding the L

I am still processing my Ally Pally photos, so I’ll be blogging those from next time.

For today, here’s 80 minutes of travel on the Chicago interurbans.  Useful for USA prototype modellers as it shows the backs of properties backing onto the railway.

And a lovely quote from the great US modeller, John Allen:

“The fact that I may half hide a full sized replica of a snake in my scenery, or pose a much oversized miniature alligator pursuing and unconcerned fisherman in a boat, is there because this amuses me, not that I don’t know better.”
John Allen, “The Wizard of Monterey”

My sort of approach to modelling!
