Three years of tedious work later, a miniature train was born!
Raymond's undying love for trains started much before he set off on his artistic journey.
Raymond Calleja had a dream to build a model of the first train that once operated in Malta.
Before the pandemic broke out, Raymond would travel all over the world to different train fairs. His discovery of the various model is what inspired him to create his own model.
But how did he do it?
Raymond set out to not only create a miniature version of the train but an exact copy to scale. This means that Raymond manufactured each piece himself using the exact dimensions of the original model!
After three years of the complex process, Raymond finished his project last March, he posted, saying, "After I manufactured all the parts, I started to assemble the chassis, and it could already work with air. side tanks, bankers, and cabin."
It's so great to see someone embracing our rich Maltese history and bringing it back to life!
