Let there be Light(s)

By

So building on my previous article on testing of LED strips and their light output and such, I finally ordered another few sets of the best one in Cool White as well as few sets of the same LEDs in Warm White.

So head over to my blog to read further...

Rakem Emporium has new home

By

Rakem Emporum is local shop that many club members have purchased from.  They have recently moved from Bribie Island to Petrie, not all that far from the clubhouse.

Rakem Emporium
4 Hanlon Road
Petrie Queensland 4502

So a few updates from the last few weeks. While Dave and Kev and Phil have been working away on some electrics on the HO layout, Peter and I have been busy down near the ravine and Bus Driver Paul has been busy working on the gravel pit.

MRH is a free monthly railroad modeling magazine that is definitely worth a read.

Recently I had the opportunity to buy my first Auscision Models locomotive, I already have two of the C44ACi’s on back order and not yet received. This model I have received in hand is the GT46C-Ace locomotive in EDI/QR National livery and numbered LDP002. This was obtained from on online vendor Ross T. I saw his ad and a couple of quick messages and the deal was done. Two days later the latest addition to my stable arrived.

TV Celebrity

By

We have a new TV Celebrity in the Club...

... for a few seconds anyway :-)

Channel Nine New Gold Coast broadcast a nice piece on the Gold Coast Train Show which includes a few seconds of the RMCQ N scale layout and a sound bite of PK talking about controling trains with our phones.

Let there be light

By

In the clubs old newsletter, “Semaphore” Volume 22 No. 9 back in September of 2013, I did an article on LED strip lighting for use with layouts. I thought it time for an update. So head on over to my blog and catchup:

So you have a Vague Idea.

By

Well, then you discuss it a little with a cohort and see if it carries water. If it does, you start to flesh it out a little more and so on with the odd discussion here and there until you think it is ready to unveil. So that is how CR 16-01 "A Small Yard in the Area West of Station" came about for the HO club layout.
