Okay, now y'all have me wondering how steam punk would cross with the world of the Space:1899 game et al.

 Wonder no more, young seeker! For the aspect of Dramatic Parlour Gaming has been explored by the
 stalwart crew at FORGOTTEN FUTURES!

 No "Space: 1889/99" specific references, but the FF role-playing system is on display, along with
 a dizzying host of period reprints ( all public domain ) and reference material. So profusely illustrated
 you'll need an absinthe' ( or two ! ) to calm your nerves after perusal!

Fact is stranger than Fiction !!
        several of those, ie .... the Atlantic Tunnel http://www.forgottenfutures.co.uk/express/express.htm
are actually passe' by Victorian times -- that story written in 1895 by Michel Verne (Jules' son) is just a description of the short Beach Pneumatic Railway that opened for public use in New York on February 26, 1870 ... tho it did not last very long due to other commercial items (the elevated railway) having more powerful backers.  The photos of the Beach system show it to be much fancier than the one in that article of Vernes !!

The remains of the Beach Railway tunnel and a carriage were unearthed in 1912 during the extension of the Broadway subway -- sadly nothing was retrieved for a museum.  Today, apart from the boiler of the steam-engine that powered the air-pump, the remains are buried under the concrete of a larger building.

What if we had trams like this one which is only 4ft high (sitting room only) & pass by climbing over each other on a single track >>>>>>





They're electric but how about powering them by steam ??

Despite much searching I've failed to find out who designed / built these trams.  All I know is that they were at a US funfair circa late 1930s/50's & apear in the strange-inventions film "Gizmo".

Some great figure ideas here.

And while this one doesn't give too much modeling information, there is just something about it...
