Crossing Paths
Model Melbourne trams

A place for everything, and everything in its place.

Finally, I am happy with the study, I am sure that the bride is happy with the study. For two and half days, there was the tear out, the clean up, the obtaining of the shelves, the building and then the fit out.

Here is the overall look.

Clean white lines.

Let's have a look at some of the features.

Glass fronted cabinet, with LED lighting for larger models,
bits and pieces, periodicals and reference books and photos.
The tool cupboard, for modelling materials, long forgotten kits,
basically the old desk clutter, plus the spare computer monitor.
The integrated workbench, with computer/internet,
printers, more storage and flexible LED task lighting.
An under the counter holster for the powercab.
Box framed display cases for short bodied
models,(most are still waiting for DCC!).
The flexible task lights come into their own during
the evening, (the take away boxes on the right
 contain all the cars/trucks that need to be installed).
The trams are obviously providing transport during
a crippling fuel crisis resulting in the lack of cars.
Sitting back and marvelling at his handy work,
Regards Glenn




  1. Looks great! That's a nice idea to store streetcars on the wall in box frames. I'll have to give that a try.

  2. Very nice Glenn looks a real showpiece

  3. Love the idea to store models in frames! Sad, large SAR steam loco's wont fit in them though :-(

  4. A very neat and tidy space. I have lots to learn from you in this regard, I have to take out awards for the most untidy tramway modeller
