First, a little modelling challenge.  How about a

“Book nook”

Book nooks are defined as “mini worlds created within your bookshelf”, usually as a diorama of an alley.  The idea seems to have originated in 2018 from a Japanese artist called Monde.  They created a “back alley bookshelf” made to fit alongside paperback books. The tweet has been liked 179k times since.

Could there be a model railway equivalent?  But I guess I had better ignore this and try and actually get some modelling done on my ‘real’ projects.  Boxing Day was a fail, due to those nice people of Amazon putting live football on all day….


The Texas Transportation Company was a trolley powered freight line with 1.3 miles of track in San Antonio Texas, which served the Pearl and Lone Star Breweries. Pearl bought up Lone Star, leaving Pearl as the only customer. The line closed in 1999.  Some interesting video here and an interesting little electric shortline to model.
