Train show fun.
« on: August 06, 2017, 07:38:35 AM »
If I see a train show close by I always give it a look as I am a fan of the human drama that is a bunch of socially awkward fellows shitting kittens as their most prized possessions are put into a zone crowded with sticky fingered children.

In fact I usually take photos of the passive aggressive notes they festoon their displays with more than the trains themselves.





well in a divine comedy that is life I have now become one of them after winning their raffle and becoming the owner of this fine beast. Best $2 spend ever!



Now being a tiny australian brand I assume this will be worth shit tons to the train people MIB in the future when they disappear. That being said I do have room for a trainset and I do have a huge box full of train stuff minus a working loco and power pack so.....

Nice one. Use your 3D printing skills to Mad Max it up (and watch 'Snowpiercer' for extra inspiration).

I think we all know that is going to happen, I'm aware of "post apocalyptic train" posts from Scurv going back at least 2 years, if not more.  ;D

I can not help but think that they would clean up if they sold copies of the notices.
I might be influenced by having visited 'Barter Books' in Alnwick (Northumberland, UK) today.
they are the people who started selling replicas of the 'Keep calm & carry on' poster.
Made, still making, a lot of money, Post cards, fridge magnets, mugs, as well as posters.

As a Dutchman, I was going to be all offended, but no, you are right, could have fooled me on first look.  :P

Scurv (and other Melbournians) - are you thinking of going to the show on 26 & 27 August at Caulfield Racecource ($15)
http://www.amravic.com.au/exhibition.html

or 24 September at Glen Iris (free)?
http://www.amravic.com.au/agenda.html

I'm thinking about this after picking up a flyer at Metro Hobbies CBD a few weeks ago. (Which by the way is having a 30% off almost everything closing down sale as the building they're in has been set to be demolished for the Melbourne Metro Rail project.)

Closing down the city store (Box Hill remains open) as they couldn't find a location in the city. They have stated that if an affordable location becomes available they will open up in the CBD again.

I have been picking over the carcass for the last week (30% ain't great, but just enough to pick up a few pieces here and there to round out projects).
