role model for a rail module


The model railway society MälarModulMöte produced a large exhibition at The National Museum of Science and Technology. Here's a freight train entering a tunnel. See more?

That's a great shot! I was wondering what it was, thinking it might be a high speed snail.

Svenske Floyd said...

Excellent shot indeed. I think it looks like a snake escaping into a hole.

Halcyon said...

Nice angle on the photo. It almost looks real-size when you see it in the thumbnails.

VP said...

Funny title and a great idea for a picture.

Lena Johansson said...

Looks real!
I like miniatures!

Andreea said...

I'm not sure I would have guessed what it was if not for the title. Nice shot.

I was privileged to visit the exhibition after hours which provided a unique photo-op. Stay tuned for more glimpses.

cieldequimper: I'm still trying to imagine a high speed snail! :)

Svenske Floyd: Thanks! I was aiming for a shot with the train still outside the tunnel but this turned out a lot more interesting.

Halcyon: The amount of detail in these models is stunning.

VP: Took a while to find that title, glad you like it.

Lena Johansson: Looks so very real.

Andreea: The illusion has us confused for a while.

Thanks all for joining us among the miniatures.

I love this! You must have had the camera on a tripod and slowed the shutter speed way down! Excellent photograph, however you did it.

Tinsie said...

Cool! Looking forward to the rest of your shots :-)

Bernt Seipl said...

I like this one. It really could be a snake :-)

Per Stromsjo said...

Typical, isn't it. Having a model freight train, rich in intricate detail and then some wise guy chooses to depict it as a legless reptile!

Jacob: Tripod it was. Yep, "Shutter 3.2".

Tinsie: So do I. Haven't really had time to dive into the pile yet.

Bernt Seipl: And I don't even like snakes!

Thanks everyone.
