New SCARM version

The latest version of my favourite Railway CAD program has been released.  SCARM is used extensively at the club for the design of the club layouts.

The new version is a bug fix for the version which was released at the begining of the month.

Read on for the release notes on the new version (0.9.36) and the previous version (0.9.35).

TV Celebrity

We have a new TV Celebrity in the Club...

... for a few seconds anyway :-)

Channel Nine New Gold Coast broadcast a nice piece on the Gold Coast Train Show which includes a few seconds of the RMCQ N scale layout and a sound bite of PK talking about controling trains with our phones.
