Fantasy corner has the work of Chris Wallas written all over it. I don't know when it was installed but in less than a week, it is due to be gone so I thought I'd get some pictures. However, due to the lighting, it was not possible to actually get good pics of every part of the scene.
Futureopolis consists of three loops, one at ground level and two elevated ones. The two upper loops extend for a short distance behind the display.
Chris is well known for full up whimsy, these are a couple of examples of cars stored in the "roundhouse."
The combine in the back has a UFO crashed into it.
I'm not sure what these are but they are "futuristic."
These two cars as well are not really describable.
The "Atlantis or Bust" train was waiting for a run out on a pier.
This is the pier over a water feature at the front of the display.
This is the train that runs at ground level.
The larger ground level train has a submarine themed locomotive.
The whole train has a nautical theme, but this one appears to be made from a V-2 model.
The last two cars in the train are also themed from underwater apparatus, but I'm not sure what the actually are.
