How things come about







How a railway is started and then evolves is a process that is very similar as it applies to both the prototype and the model.



The idea of a railway takes hold as one notices what it provides for other people.
The prototype strictly for practical reasons as a means of easier transportation. The model as a whimsical idea to recreate the builders impressions of what a railway is.
