Great Second Life Destinations: Make Sure to Visit The DRD Arctic Express,   One of the Highlights of This Year's Holiday Season Before It Goes Off The Grid

Great Second Life Destinations: Make Sure to Visit The DRD Arctic Express,   One of the Highlights of This Year's Holiday Season Before It Goes Off The Grid | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

The DRD Arctic Express is simply magical. The setting of this old fashion steam locomotive in a snowy polar ice region, together with the lush settings inside, including a dining car reminiscent of the famous Venice-Simplon Orient Express (which I was lucky enough to ride once on a short journey from Southampton England to Waterloo Station, London) makes for wonderful photographic opportunities

Boarding the  Arctic Express in Second Life

Boarding the  Arctic Express in Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Inspired by the 1985 children’s classic, The Polar Express, written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg, the DRD Arctic Express, built by sisters Jaimy Hancroft and Eowyn Swords, is currently being showcased in its own region for the holiday season. As the region is a venue for the Lab’s Jolly Holiday Crawl, and DRD is the subject of segment #42 of the Drax Files World Makers; (see my review here), Caitlyn and I took time out on a Friday afternoon to pay it a visit.

The express sits to one side of a snow-bound landscape under an overcast sky, patiently awaiting passengers to climb the steps and board the carriages. Those who do will find there’s considerable comfort to be had within. For example, the First Class saloon located immediately behind the engine and its tender, provides soft sofas and armchairs in which to relax, with decorated Christmas trees offering a seasonal sparkle, while cookies and hot chocolate are on hand to ward off the cold.

DRD Arctic Express - Moonlight Sonata & Orinoco (The Roofs of Paris) Second life

DRD Arctic Express - Moonlight Sonata & Orinoco (The Roofs of Paris) Second life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

A couple of delightful sights are now available for visits courtesy of DRD (Death Row Designs) and Milk Motion. Both are available as a set of gacha items at the December Arcade, and therefore might seem unusual for this blog to cover, but each has been rezzed as a lovely destination point in its own right. In the case of the DRD Arctic Express (inspired by Chris Van Allsburg's classic story The Polar Express, and built by Eowyn Swords, Harter Fall and Jaimy Hancroft, with contributions from Morbid Deceit), an old-fashioned locomotive is barreling through a snow-covered landscape, rounding a turn, and seeming perhaps frozen in time (image above). There are some delightful poses — be sure to investigate the smokestack as well as the interior. By contrast, Milk Motion's The Roofs of Paris (detail below), created by Marie Lauridsen, is rezzed in a large sphere over the ground, and is a charming and amusing slice of the City of Light, with splendid detail throughout.
