Model Melbourne trams

A few moments in the afternoon.

Given an evening without the entertainment of a young family, I could spend hours up in the study phaffing around with the digital camera, tripod and an assortment of desk and and floor lamps setting up photo opportunities.

The staging of trams, traffic and punters in ways that narrate a moment in time, coupled with a few hours (and a few beverages) photo editing on the laptop with saturation, contrast and warmth, that in the end offer 'a few moments in the afternoon'.

Patiently waiting at the Victoria St gates

The mad dash through the gates before the next suburban service.

Beware where you step near the racecourse.

Short shunting at the gates

The reason for the short shunting, the 'Festival of Trams' in Epsom Rd.

  1. Definitely worth the time. Fascinating layout & your photos are very atmospheric ... takes me back to my time in Melbourne!

    Thanks for posting.


  2. Most impressive tram models I have seen for a while. If you look at mine the best I could do was sort of an M&MTB paintjob. I will get around to building Aussie Prototypes but probably single truck cars.... The overhead is very nice too....
