The RMCQ is a club for anyone who likes to make, run, talk about, or simply watch... Model Trains
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.
Always worth a visit to a new shop to get to know them and their stocks. So if you are in the vacinity, pop into the new one - MAC Hobbies and Toys:
Unit 2, 14-18 Discovery Drive, North Lakes
Today we could all view the beginnings of the new shed - the trailer shed.
The concreters had been down late in the week and boxed and poured the new slab for the upcoming 4 bay shed. So Gabby now has a new job for a week or so - hosing the slab down to keep it moist.

MRH is a free monthly railroad modelling magazine that is definitely worth a read. Have you read yours lately?
So last weekend, the 17th Sept, was the Modelling the Railways of Queensland Convention. What a great weekend I had.
One of the layouts I visited as part of the convention was of course "Wattle Flat" - what a great NSW, HO scale layout Darren has out there - fantastic. Check out the odd 1 or 20 or more photos over on my blog:
Have you seen? If you have installed the latest version of SCARM, you can drive a train around it in 2D or 3D. Get to see roughly what your layout design is like from a more realistic perspective. AND of course it is all free - basic, but free.
Have you all read the latest AMRM ? Just released and guess what I saw when I opened it up? I never knew. They do say you learn something new every day.
And today, I learned that Scooter, AKA Craig Mackie, can write!
So check out his great article in this issue of AMRM.
Just a quick update from the MRQC committee on how things are going for the Convention. It is just 3 weeks away, and one week to the close of Registrations.
