future projects

  • Dodman's Gazelle-inspired Muntjac more details
  • the 'first Porsche' re-imagined as a steam-electric vehicle more details
  • the Occidental Express more details
  • the last three of the 'concept sketches' shown below
And, when the management really do have more time on their hands than is ever envisaged:
  • a miniature railway based on N gauge track and rolling stock with 1/20 scale drivers and passengers (9 mm track is about 7 inch gauge at 1/20 scale – in the real world there are 7¼ and 7½ inch gauge ride-on miniature railways)
  • a funicular railway – just because Rowland Emett came up with some truly bonkers designs


early concept sketches

Back in March 2017 the ideas for Emett-inspired rolling stock resulted in a series of 'concept sketches'. These initial ideas have led to other ideas, but here are 'thumbnails' of the original A2-size illustrations.

The first four have been built, or inspired something better. Improbable as the other three look, there are intentions to build even more improbable versions. Sometime. But the management of Whittlecreek and Eaton St Torpid Heritage Railway have indicated that assorted sleeping cars and the Art Deco dining car (with kitchen) are higher in priority.
