Only 10 months away now - the N Scale convention which is down in Adelaide next year.

Check it out, a new Hobby shop on the northside, "MAC Hobbies and Toys". A few members have already been there and reckon if they haven't got something they'll get it in and are willing to start stocking things people are asking for.
