You Aught to Follow This One


Craig does some pretty great modelling work. So I recommend you check his blog from time to time - like every Sunday night.

Here is an interesting article about the London Underground and their experiment to get a higher throughput of passengers up the escalators.

A Phew Photos


We have some photos donated to the blog by Jason Mills. One of them from QR 12”to the foot rail where track work and bridgework was being undertaken at South Pine River. The other couple are some fine specimens of NSWGR nostalgia.

This has been annoying me since early October! At the end of September I bought myself a nice little Walthers HO scale EMD SW1 switcher in Rock Island colours.

A couple of weeks back Darryl D was at the club, yeh I know - stranger danger, AND he had a FRED with him... I became VERY alarmed!

Possibilities in N


Some of the N'ers were chatting a few weeks back and thoughts of change are always in our minds. Why you ask?  Because we like the general public to see changes on our exhibition layout and so there is always something new on it to keep them entertained.

A Few Weeks of Happenings


Last weekend saw a bit of 12 mm track go down including some really great very large curved points scratch built by Bob P. Darryl D and John B were also busy helping lay some track and of course Darryl just had to get a 12 mm train running on the few metres of track that got installed - so he gets 1st train run flag for the 12 mm.

HILLSIDE, New Jersey: Effective immediately, Atlas Model Railroad Co., has agreed to purchase BLMA Models Inc., of Fullerton, California. 

I see Dallas Q has been busy installing some scratch built tunnel portals as well as getting ready for installing more wooden trestles on the front bridge in the big ravine.
