Charred re­mains:

This burned-out BR brake van makes for a sorry sight, but it’s a fas­ci­nat­ing scenic ad­di­tion to the cor­ner of a yard. Ei­ther the guard was care­less with the stove, or some ne­far­i­ous youths have been up to no good.

High-volt­age mod­el­ling:

Elec­tric­ity sub­sta­tions have been a ubiq­ui­tous fea­ture of the ur­ban land­scape for gen­er­a­tions, yet we sel­dom see them fea­tured on lay­outs. They’re al­ways sur­rounded by high-se­cu­rity fenc­ing, adorned with warn­ing signs.

Have bag, will travel:

Pas­sen­gers, await­ing their train at a sleepy branch line sta­tion, have their lug­gage at the ready. The porters’ trol­lies, stored around the side of the sta­tion build­ing, add an ex­tra touch of re­al­ism.
