Model Railroads, Slums, & Pawn Shops

Posted at October 17, 2005 10:02 AM

This edition of "way too much time" features the coolest project I've seen so far.

From vestaldesign.com:

I learned last year that friend and fellow designer Peter Feigenbaum has an amazing train layout in his basement. He's drawn upon scenes of urban decay in the Boston, Philadelphia, and NYC metropolitan areas, and the result is a set of lovingly crafted but entirely seedy and run-down scenes. Dilapidated corner groceries, pawn shops and scrap dealers inhabit these streets, and Pete is hilariously straight-faced in his comments, not to mention extremely knowledgeable about the specifics of urban transportation. "Former freight house, now an outlet store," or "Close-up of a burned-out commercial zone, inspired by the South Bronx," among other gems.

You can view a lot of must-see photos on vestaldesign's site
