The RMCQ is a club for anyone who likes to make, run, talk about, or simply watch... Model Trains
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.

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.
I think I can say for all that we had another great time up there in Bundaberg at the model train show over the weekend. Congratulations to the Bundaberg club for hosting a good one. B1 even got to be on TV! So now I just have to track down a copy of his interview for blackmail purposes...
