Into the gaping hole left in our hearts by the cancelled Hobart Christmas Pageant bursts MonaRail: a festive choo choo traversing a vast and merry landscape in miniature, complete with snowy alpine ranges, ski lifts and tobogganing, cheerful villages twinkling with Christmas lights, a Ferris wheel, good old Saint Nick, and dewy-eyed Yuletide cheer.

MonaRail is a jolly and joy-filled new venture from Kirsha Kaechele, with:

  • Emily Wood – Project Manager and Creative Producer
  • Brian Looker – Diorama Sculptor
  • Trudi Brinkman – Production Associate
  • Steve Vangellekom – Model Train Technician

Thanks to James Fisher for welcoming us into the model train world, and for his support.
