Bolivia was exhibited years back Tony.
Spent the last 4 years full time with my mother.
War museum is brilliant. The ARHS has a good collection at Kingston and I think two of the model clubs have rooms there.
cheers
Bob

Sorry about your Mum, Bob--but it is good in many ways that you are able to spend time with her

Hi Bob, good you are taking care of your mum and she isn't in a nursing home, wee would never put our son in on after all the stories you hear about and some just resent.

If anything happened to us we would make sure he goes into independent living with blokes with the same condition.

Ok did you go to the train when it was at the Ekka.

The ARHS has a book shop at Sydney Central will check them out, there is a second book on Sydney Central station.

well under way with the station modules, I cut the module legs to size and drilled the hols and bolted them on quite sturdy when moving the module in place.




First pic is showing how I bolted the first station module to the corner spiral module



Second pic is looking at the bus wiring plugs, they will be hidden when Sydney central station is set up.
The piece of ply behind the leg will have to be cut into a L shape that is where the road be going and bus station.






Fourth pic is showing the countersunk bolts, there will be another module going behind it.




Last pic the light colour ply will lift out when Sydney Central is set up to show the entrance to the tunnel walk way o the platforms.

I am modelling east Perth terminal where the Indian Pacific finishes her three day journey across Australia.

The next two station modules bee easy to set up and level, I am aiming to comple the whole front of the layout connecting to the car port section, WOW, so close but still heaps more ahead.

Tony this is a fantastic build thread!  Glad you took the advice to have an independent thread.

You'd need acres of land to accurately model the prototype, but it looks like you've figured that out quite quickly.  Keep up the good work, it's a lot easier to find your layout progress now that you've got your own thread.

I'll be watching this because I might just do something similar, so thank you for the inspiration!

Modules are coming along nicely there Tony.

ARHS bookshop had to go back to Redfern so you will have to have a little walk from Redfern or a longer one from Central.

I haven't been to the Brisbane exhibition for some years. I made the Sydney diamond anniversary one with some help with mum from relo's.

Thanks, brevity can be a curse.. My mother is still alive but I recently had to put her in a nursing home as her care got beyond what a son could do. I feed her lunch everyday.
cheers
Bob

Many thanks James, the feed back will get me more motivated now, yeah I got the inspiration from Trevor's thread as South Australia is simular in climate in summer to Ipswich QLD.

I will have to agree what you are saying now and great you are thinking of building a HO scale outdoor layout.
Wish our yard is flat as I could do what you said around the whole yard front and back be awesome, I did at one time planning to run around the whole hose came own to money on a budget.

Be looking forward to see you start a thread in the 00/HO scale garden railway.

Many thanks for the kind words James.

Hi Bob, thanks be awesome when the station modules are finished and levelled, finished by next weekend,then I can work on the entrance module where most of the points are on.

And the final gap between that module and car port end, can't complete the final gap to the station modules are levelled.

Big day out at the train club, got the Flying Scot duel tenders sorted out with kadee's, running passenger trains, only one freight train.

That is sad to hear about ARHS having to move was looking forward o checking hem out.

That would of being a hard decision to make putting your mum in a nursing home, good you still go there daily to give her lunch, great stuff.

Being raining here all day how about Glen Innes.

Bye from Tony.

Hi Tony.

Looking good !

28 car platform !!

At my local station, when they stopped a train longer than 12 cars...
...they had signs right up against the windows...
...telling the passengers not to get out, or they'd fall on the track !!
Electric doors now of course.

May the sun shine in Ipswich.
Ipswich here has some good weather !

:moose:

Si.

Hope they got more than 1 bathroom on those 28 car trains...
...it's a long walk after a few V.B.s other wise !

Hi Si thanks can't wait to the big day the first test train will roll out of the station, so close but still far away.

Over here the passengers are told to make their way through the carriage's to the cars at the platform, that is why Perth is so long Adelaide they use two platforms same with Sydney. That will be stage two of the station module build.

Yes in the sit up carriages there are two toilets,{bathrooms} at each end the sleeper cabins they have their own toilets, not sure of the lounge car and dinner car, will have to ask my mum she did the Indian Pacific trip in May.

Thanks to Eddie I now can see gallery in menu, just a matter of clicking a box, but changed the forum page to a blue boarder .

The remote mouse doesn't like the change or could need a new battery.

I did a video of my Indian Pacific yesterday at the train club have to upload to you tube today thanks to NBN it only takes 5 minutes before over half an hour.

Si do you live in Ipswich UK, awesome, the old train club in Ipswich had ties with the club over there, they are no more, shame, the Brisbane club takes an hour drive from my place.

Thanks to all the Admin guys we have the gallery back, looks like just a simple fix, I could of changed quite a while back.

To celebrate I have downloaded my pride and joy, Flying Scotsman 4472 powered duel tenders.
I decided to change the draw bar to kadee's was having too many problems with the draw bar, test ran the loco on Saturday at my train club, I did have the 11 coaches but was having problems with them. Will have to bite the dust and change the couplers from the bogies to body mounted, big job.



First pic I still have to put in a coupler box, the brass shaft that is used to pick up the main drive wheels, will cut it to size an bolt the coupler box to the now water tender.







It is good to back in business uploading and posting pics

On a high, working on the second station module today, have to cut and screw in place the two ends and middle beams. Then I can bolt it to the first module level and mark the module legs, third module is already made up just need the same.
