Hi David,

This is fantastic news. I have acquired the train kit at IDI and look forward to trying it out at Sprite.

A virtual world historic project that I hope to make is a recreation of parts of the old Bellerive to Sorell Railway (1892-1926, Tasmania, Australia). This may have historic interest, attract train enthusiasts, have an educational role and even include tourism, as people could visit the virtual experience before flying around the world to the far southwest Pacific to see the real thing.

There would be three main historic features in the project. The railway. The Kangaroo Bluff Battery (Google ~ Bellerive Fort) and the Ross Bridge in Ross.

The Fort is a fascinating 1880s defence work, built in fear of a Russian invasion, which had two large guns (similar to the model cannon on the bridge at IDI made by Ferrator Montoya) and two smaller guns.

The Ross Bridge, Tasmania, opened in 1834, is to my knowledge unique in the world, as its three arches have carvings all the way along both sides, made by the convict stonemason Daniel Herbert (former career in Cornwall - highwayman). The carvings are quite mysterious and their meaning is hidden in the mists of time.

One carving is of a king, which is believed to be the former ruler of Iceland (1809), the Danish adventurer Jorgen Jorgenson, who ended up in Van Diemen's Land as a convict in 1826 and was popularly known as the ex-king of Iceland ~ a myth in his own time.

A railway runs through Ross, so with the virtual project, the train would run from Bellerive, where the ferries arrived from Hobart across the River Derwent, to Ross. A number of historic homes from Bellerive and Ross could be included.

I look forward to news of train activities.

Good luck with it all,

Celest,

Stjarna

The VRC has decided to leave organizing rail and transport content to groups that are firmly rooted on InWorldz. I thank David Wolfe for keeping the idea of this alive on InWorldz and wish him and his new group all the best of luck.
