Rakem Emporium has new home


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.
