Having just arrived home,
after spending 3 1/2 days, looking at Narrow Gauge, and attending various clinics.
I have a few photos to share.

The following are Scrathbuilt 1:20 / 1:24
The only things purchased are the motors, the gears and the wheel sets.

Built by David Fletcher of Melbourne Australia.

On the last day of the convention,
I was fortunate to join a tour of several private layouts.

The bus pulled out at 9 am and returned about 6 pm.

I have included here some pictures of David Fletchers outdoor layout.
His locos and rolling stock are a delight to behold
They are 1:20 and 1:24 running on 45 mm track = 3 feet. 
The layout is DC.


Going around the fish pond.
