It takes a lot to get me excited these days, but I am sitting in my workshop surrounded by my ‘O’ Gauge layouts and an assortment of model dioramas constructed by me. However, it is not these that have caused this rare excitement!
Before me I have, what can only be described as, a masterpiece. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not perfect, but it’s as good as it gets. It’s the diorama of Water Street in Manchester made back in the middle of the last century by Jack Nelson. Would I describe him as a master modeller? Probably not. A genius at creating an awe inspiring perspective diorama? Absolutely!Jack Nelson, John Mileson, L&NWR, Railway
