We have initiated a program of working closely with NORTEL to test an ever increasing complexity of environments to estimate if there is a practical boundary to the combination of physical size, polygon count and texture intricacy. The main aim of this exercise is to develop a balanced concept which we hope finally to apply to a Museum of Industrial Heritage primarily aimed at incorporating achaeological sites and historical data from the North of the United Kingdom. These sites will include such marvels as the first railway developed for use with steam locomotion. In September, 1825, the Stockton & Darlington Railroad Company began as the first railroad to carry both goods and passengers on regular schedules using locomotives designed by English inventor, George Stephenson. Stephenson's locomotive the "Rocket" pulled six loaded coal cars and 21 passenger cars with 450 passengers over 9 miles in about one hour.
As a first trial to host the MellaniuM environments on the NORTEL web.alive platform we can proudly announce the accessibilty of the "Roth-Holm" virtual residence. Originally this was created as a method of selling real estate by using web UNREAL portals to allow potential buyers the opportunity to visit the residence virtually from anywhere in the world.

The combination of this truly brilliant NORTEL web browser accessible web.alive client and the MellaniuM application now leaves only three simple requirements to allow for a web3D to burgeon and explode onto a consumer market: "Content, content and content"
