Nemo II

When last we saw Nemo, the Jules Verne-inspired underwater Steampunk city existed solely beneath the waves. Now a second round of development has left in place an entire surface city that surrounds the submerged part, including a High Street with various shops.

The transit system is quite simple. Each railcar moves between two stations only in a quick, efficient trip.

This enormous Steampunk ship appears to be in drydock.

The interior is roomy and outfitted with the latest in navigational devices.

A look at the engine room.

Another short tram ride away are the mines. Enormous drilling and conveying devices extract the mineral wealth of Nemo.

Back to High Street, where those familiar with BlakOpal Designs will find a familiar storefront:

At the head of the street stands the observatory. In the bottom level is an orrery...

...while above stands a precision-made telescope.

Mr. Sextan Shepherd has made a fine addition to Nero's realm. The attention to detail in the build is amazing.

My god, that is stunning. That should be a wake-up for all Steamland builders to raise games :)

Indeed it is, and indeed they should. :)

I was in some other period builds recently, and they paled in comparison. Mr. Shepherd is a cut above.
