Very familiar indeed, all looks very much like Victorian buildings at home here, I'd feel content in any one of them, full of charm and character.

Some I saw on the way through Queenscliffe:

Former Royal Hotel, as it was (newer Streetview images cut off there).

What it looks like now.



This fort is supposed to contain a good museum.

Streetview got fuzzy here.

These two adjacent buildings are significantly different, but possess similar tower roofs. They are both accomodation.

I am again traveling. This time, the city of Orel (Eagle) and the festival travelers.

Many of the old houses I in styles and eras is not strong. But this is a classic home provincial Russian towns.

Sorry for the errors, rudeness and stupidity. It's not me, this online translator. Really convenient?

That last one, a  bit more 'shanty' rather than 'steam'. Doesn't really look the part for me.

Loved the old signal box, Chironex, they have destroyed too many of them lately.

In Ringwood, near where we live, they upgraded the railway station. We were quite annoyed when the lovely old signal box suddenly vanished and assumed it had been turned into landfill. Then it reappeared all shite and briney and takes pride of place on the side of the highway. https://railgallery.wongm.com/melbourne-stations/F115_2237.jpg.html

I found this in Maryborough last Sunday:





I'd be here for hours if the camera battery hadn't run out. There are a lot more things to see here.

I'm not going to start a thread about it but I'm in the early stages of planning out something for the products of my model-making thread to run about on.  I'm setting it in Nottinghamshire in the late 1910s/early 1920s.  Which means I'm on the look-out for buildings recogniseably of the Nottingham area to include.  Well, I think this *has* to be on the list. 



Watson Fothergill's studio in Nottingham (built 1893-94).  I mean, just look at it, it's wonderful.  You've got the Early English Gothic in there, Queen Anne/ Arts and Crafts polychromatic masonry, something almost Bavarian with that gable in the roof and more than a hint of Ruskin's Venetian Gothic with those window lintels.  It's madcap bonkers but there's something very satisfying about the composition and proportions.   
Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

And your very own patron Saint hanging over the front door.

Just the thing to dress up for seasonal festivities with a santa-suit or easter bonnet...

It was put up for sale in 2015 but bizzarely nobody wanted it.  Then somebody drove a truck into it- and it's still waiting to be repaired.

We probably need a steampunk HQ. If we all donated a tenner, how much would we have?
