future projects

  • Rocket-powered B-type railbus more details
  • Dodman's Gazelle-inspired Muntjac more details
  • the 'first Porsche' re-imagined as a steam-electric vehicle more details
  • the last two of the 'concept sketches' shown below: Ye Olde Worlde Tea Shoppe cum buffet car, and End of the Pier carousel with calliope steam-powered organ
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 five have been built, or inspired something better. Improbable as the other two look, there are intentions to build even more improbable versions. Sometime.
