I went down on Sunday (to Corio, you pawn afflicted SOB's) and really enjoyed it, the model rail exhibition as well. Saw G' Loops little Ginty, mightily impressed, a real credit to him.I asked in another thread how many hours are involved in a labor of love like that. As I said in the other thread, there was one glaring problem with it, it's not in my display cabinet, straight to the pool room. If it hadn't been in a glass case I would have stole it. ( only kidding, for the humour impaired)

I wasn't actually there that long, after spending about 500 bucks in the first 10 minutes, I sorta thought that getting out the door at that stage  might be a good idea. The alternative being  spending the night in the shed or on the back lawn , with all my worldly possessions in a couple of garbage bags at the back door. But I persevered, and soldiered on manfully,until.  Walked past a stall with a heap of Eureka stuff,yeah okay, then I saw the R class and became noticeably aroused, even the 6 or 700 dollar price tag didn't dampen the pheromones, but with in an instant I could feel the wrath of "er in doors" building, so hesitantly out the door I went. Even in the box it looked very impressive,at a passing glance.

I think there were a couple of threads on the Eureka R a couple of years ago,I'll have to have a bit of a wander about.

Apart from a chance at getting nailed by the walloppers/ speed camera car (4 or5 K's over in a 80 K zone, me and 5 others.) south of  Ballarat, a very enjoyable day
