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:

Free Model Trains Simulator

By

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.

Rakem Emporium has new home

By

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.
