Does a Train Track get any better?


Oh. The Joy of it. Again.

Compare with last month's effort:


  • Anyone appreciating out there?
  • All criticisms and observations made in love received.
Care to comment, Tubman? Reuben? Rodeoclown? Anthony? Kieth? Seapea? Jane? Jason? Samr? Mandy? rd? Eric? Moffitt the Prophet? Dre? Sam? And anyone else who commented on my previous post.

Must.go.to.meeting with Martin.

Ooh! Like this one. It's almost a chi-ro at 2 o'clock...almost.


PS did you notice that there's a photo of you on our blog? Check the latest post and click on the st.ives photo. I think you probably missed it when you last visited...

you make me laugh! love the tracks, envious of your gifts! hope the boy and girl are appreciative!

Steve Carlisle said...

you are completely the man!

I made a track last night for my kids, and it was okay, but the bad bit is that when the train got into a circuit, they were unable to get back out of that circle, and just went round and round.

So, I SALUTE YOU!

Anthony Douglas said...

Yes, this is clearly a superior effort. Far more natural curves, as if it had grown there. Lovely.

Clifford Swartz said...

A great work of art and civil engineering in miniature! A suggestion to consider is the joy that The Boy might have were you to put some of the curved track around a leg table or underneath a sofa. Something exciting about making the train go around a substantial obstacle.

Pleasure to be of service, Ms Rees.

but the bad bit is that when the train got into a circuit, they were unable to get back out of that circle, and just went round and round.

That, my friend, is the task. Make sure that don't happen! :)

There is more curves. The Boy turned 4 last month, and got some new track. And Tidmouth Sheds.

Something exciting about making the train go around a substantial obstacle.

Mr Swartz, I could not agree more. It shall be done at 6:45AM tomorrow.

:)

yes, 2.0 better than 1.0

the sheds complete it

i take off my hat to you.

You shall now be known as the (not so ) Fat Controller.

Sam said...

Wow - I love it - I particularly like the sheds!! It looks more complicated and my eye just wants to follow all the tracks!! Well done you!

Jason said...

Justin, you are Da Man.

The tracks just get better - when will it end? This ability is one of the Fruit Of The Spirit. Maybe.

When I grow up, I want to make train tracks like this :)

Love your work.

Justin said...

Yes. You get it.

I wish my son took it as seriously as you and me, Jason.

Seriously.

David Starling said...

Oh that's good...

I've dabbled in the art form myself but I can't say I've even come close to the fusion of organic form and efficient function that you have achieved in this one.

Nice idea, too, to use the blog to share with us (and with posterity) what would otherwise have been such a private and ephemeral thing of beauty.

Ali said...

I really like your rug/carpet!! But the train track obscuring pieces of it is pretty cool too ...

Keith said...

N - ice. Options are the key, and you've got em in spades, baby.

K -Ei - th.

Moffitt the Prophet said...

That's pretty hot - although I notice that some of the trains are coming off or have already crashed.
