This is unfortunately will be the last Layout that I will get to build with my awesome Dad.

It is an ON 18 continuous layout  of a small Sandstone quarry

I took these photos quickly on my I Phone so I could show him in his hospital bed









I have done some more work and added about 10 more figures and painted to 'blue" stones

I'm very sure your dad will like the photographs.

Kind regards

Hi Ian,
Hope all goes well exhibiting - It should, you have done a very nice job on the quarry. Where are you exhibiting? Maybe a posting here can drum ups some more lookers for you? I'm a bit too far south to make for this outing, but hopefully you and your quarry will make it to the next ANGC at Geelong in 2017?
