Often, in childhood, I would ride on trains to visit relatives, moving from one city to another. At this age I was already attracted by trains, stations, railways, railroad ties, screw-bolts and even the smell of the railway. Maybe it is some kind of illness "¦? Anyway, moving on, I then began modeling the rails. For this purpose, I did the rail profile and line of direction, and also the railroad ties and fastenings. So that the rails didn't look so sad and boring, I decided to add a small turn. And so that the scene didn't seem so empty, I added a few railroad mechanisms and electro-transmission lines (Fig.43 - Fig.47).

Initially I wanted to use a photo for the background, but again I scratched my head and thought, "Do not even think about it, you are the real railroad CG-machinist!" So, I decided to do a few low poly models of train carriages, some cylindrical depositories and a few details. And that completes the modeling section (Fig.48 & Mov.11)!
