I enjoy this thread, some good banter.

I wonder if it is now too dangerous for an individual to openly have 'different ' political views to the mainstream?

I'm sure many people know what the 'co ...

Did the Railway Terrace leg of the triangle make it up as far as the pubs? I could see the loco parked out the front & the crew stopping in for crib!

Monash?

I feel I can add something to this conversation. Typically, after low speed derailment you'll be looking for damaged wheel flanges, broken or dislocated springs, damaged sand gear and dented gear case ...

Great shot David! Is that on the triangle at Morgan?

Announced by UGL today that the PH37's have been purchased by PN, plus another 3 x 93 class. I assume the 93's

will be new builds.

I wonder if there is any commonality between equipment supplied to SA and that used in WA & QLD? (Which are older systems)

Agree with your comments don_dunstan.

Innovation isn't going to help either. You can only sell an idea once, and who's going to pay all the innovators?

Had a look at the painted sample last night & must say it looks great. The step flap can be set in the position of your choice which is a nice touch. Fred indicated that the cream was a bit too yellow ...

Does anyone do cast wool bale or wheat bag loads for these? BGB did once........

I was talking to the Ozrail shop owner when the sample first came in. He indicated that the stanchions wouldn't be done upright to save cost. He went on to justify that by saying they were rarely put  ...

The cream certainly looks a bit too yellow to my eye too. Perhaps it's just the photos. Lovely models though & will certainly find a home in my collection for two or three.

Pick up another M van to ...

Would love to know the story behind how they came to choose 520!

Hopefully some seriously good PR for Steamranger to be gained.

RTR 520, Even in OO, would be amazing!

Spent the last few days in Port Elliott. Rx207 running all weekend has sounded lovely coming & going (this has to be the best location for listening to steam trains & relaxing with family & friends!). ...

Where did the fish go once they arrived in Adelaide? That's also assuming they were removed in Adelaide. Were the vehicles loaded with fish shunted anywhere to be unloaded?

Interesting to know who  ...

If you've got the National Railway Museum DVD featuring Kym Bird's movies, there's a couple of shots of it in there, including in a demolished state. It was just a wooden step down with a name board,  ...

Couple of new updates on the blog, things are starting to ramp up again!

Just curious, the flat would have been coded Fnc originally, what was the SFnc recode for?

Pair of CFCL S Class passed through Dry Creek around dawn, probably a fortnight ago now, leading a string of 3801 ltd cars. Anyone know and care to let on what that may have been passing through for?

Anyone aware of a source of brick card that represents Besser Blocks, HO scale, that looks Australian. Probably known as cinder blocks too. Micromark in the US has a nice product, but would prefer to  ...



So there were countless trips up and down South Road. I always remember the "dog leg" in South Road at Hackham.
