I'm sure many of you have seen the Steampunk offerings from Hornby (and been unimpressed by them). On a more positive note these 3D printed figures maybe of interest to anyone building a Steampunk or Victorian model railway or diorama, not cheap but available in a wide range of scales.

Ooooh interesting.

I know of this company (mainly because of the specialist service they offer of scanning and 3D oneself) but these look VERY interesting and may well be useful for my SP box file diorama (And anyone else contributing).

I suspect a certain Mr Harrison may be able (or looking to) find a home for some of them on his layout...

Some of them could quite easily pass for Edwardian/ 1910s too.... don't be surprised if some appear, at some point, on Rufford Red Lion Square.

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.

These are based on real people from a reenactment group on facebook called "Ragged Victorians".  I have actually corresponded with Slogger Rose.
