Hi Si and all,
Well please don't say you all weren't consulted.
BTW That last video is the "current" last episode - But wait, we ain't done yet...As the salesman says "Yes, there's more..." Both in "potholing" the past to get "up to where we is", and, going forward to detailing and finishing to ready for "public exhibition" standard.
Stay tuned as we head backwards to head forwards... Sounds confusing?? Sometimes it was for us as well,
As far as the aircon in the Xtrail went. It behaved faultlessly for over a 1000 km each way. It should have dome, because it copped a full rebuild at considerable $$'s after it died on our Junee jaunt. But the Junee jaunt is another story that might appear here elsewhere.

Thanks for the prod. I've been a bit slow getting stuff up on here. I'll have to fix that, but life has got in the way.
Yes the layout has been out to play once more. This time at the Modelling The Railways of NSW Convention in late May this year.
Here is the whole layout as set up in the room, with the mine at the far end.
Perhaps another few photos to whet your appetite??
A closer look at the mine.
The left-most building is a stand-in for the lamphouse and the powerhouse has yet to appear, in front of the left end of the trestle at the front.
And the Screens at the foot of the incline.
I'll have to go back to about page 15 and do some potholing of how we got from there to here.
We have yet to cover modelling Brokers Nose and the mine itself in detail, the Dead-End module beyond the incline top, and, tipper-outer design, as well as some of the work done on the locos (both standard and narrow gauge) since about page 15. That's a fair bit of potholing to do, and still to come in the Corrimal saga.
I promise I'll try to make it worth the wait, but there might be a wait before the next installment.
I'm going to be a bit busy for the next few weeks. I'll be back when I can.
