Fantasy doesn't mean cartoon, it's a state of fun
One more thing to add.
Fantasy is a term. Freelance sounds too boring. Too sterile
and too old fashioned.
Perhaps Fantasy will turn folks off thinking that stupid things
will join with real neat detailed and weathered pieces.
It doesn't have to be that way folks.
Fantasy simply means you are not locking into a prototypical
place in particular.
Now, you might find Thomas the Tank engine taking a spin around
a T-Trak layout at a show to please the children (and adults I might add)
but at home you run only the best and those items that fit your era.
My theme is an over all theme for my personal modular railway line.
I will have topical modules that address different schenes or themes
I want to convey. All for my pleasure and the pleasure of those who
view my layout and modules.
With our the miniature modules you can do one with a theme and set it
on the shelf knowing full well you can run trains across it.
Then you buid a few more of a different theme.
Snow scenes, desert scenes, mountains and such all on different modules
yet all can be locked together in a nice flow that says more to a viewer
and perhaps to you then what a permanent layout will.
Ever want to make a statement? Ever just want to see a neat snow scene
but you modeled south Florida?
I want flexibility in my layout. Heck my rolling stock certainly is flexible.
And believe me, no one enjoys detail more than I. I got into N because of the detail. With N scale it seems you can have great detail that looks
even more convincing then it does in HO. Anyone agree?
I don't want to tick off the HO folks but heck they shouldn't be hanging around here anyway.
I'm just kidding.
HOer's are always welcome. Some of the best N scalers used to be HOers.
Let's continue the discussion on fantasy railroads.
Keep in mind fantasy football isn't stupid it's just like the war games or other fantasy stuff. I wouldn't say fantasy war games of the Civil War were off detail or inaccurate. In know they take great pains in staying true with history. Ours can too.
Let's not let the other hobbys have all the fun!!!
