Since I have started work on the latest project, probably best bringing it into this post rather thank in other post.

I was given an model of Revels UP's Big Boy in HO scale and was working out what to do with the model once finished and protect it, came up with Kennefick Park.

Ended up with a new Bachman DD40AX 6900 to complete the diorama project and yet another loco to run on my layout also, has DCC on board too.

Here is a link of Kennefick park where I got the first pic from and you will more pics in the gallery on the left hand side.
Also see pics on how they shifted both locos and built the park around the locos



The project will be take a long while, mainly the fencing be a challenge, that's what model trains is all about.
The summer months in Australia get pretty hot will move indoors on projects in the nice cool lounge.




Having some trouble editing the post so will send the other three pics on a new post.

Two very good looking models Tony! That'll be a unique diorama to say the least.

Hi James, many thanks for the kind words will get me motivated to get stuck into the Kenefick Park project.

I was going to just buy a DD40AX 6900 shell and replace the old DD40AX 6922 shell, Bachman said the new shell would fit the older chassis.

Coned my wife into paying a bit more to buy the complete loco, that loco has DCC on board, kicking myself should of got the one with the sound chip, next one will have sound.

The Big Boy is a Revel kit and very hard model indeed, the boiler was very hard to line up onto the two drive wheel sets. A
As you would of noticed the front boiler has a learn on it, luckily I didn't glue the front piece with the hand rails on it will straighten the boiler up when the project is finished.

Had a look at your web page and you sure have been busy with the O scale and N scale layouts, I like the Dakota layout, have you thought of making a clear styrene clover for the layout, that will solve the dust issue.

Looking forward to the cooler months, not that far away now, February hasn't been too bad this summer, in the low to mid 30's-F

Happy Modelling Tony from down under

Hi Ray, thanks as soon as I have finished the wind turbine blade train load project I will be making a start on the Kenefick park project.

Have found out a new but old way to post pics on the forum, will be starting a new thread on that topic, pretty simply actually .

What's the weather like in San Diego, a cyclone that hit Yeppoon on the coast not far from Rockhampton has turning into a low and heading our way. We are copping another low nothing to do with the cyclone, predicted to hit us tonight.

Tony
