At least we can meet on here Bob.
Given you would be coming from so far away I might add some mince meat to the beans for the occasion mate. :>)

How's the track building going Bob?
Not much happening on the O gauge front here at the moment.

cheers

Bob,

I built 6 switches and I'm currently taking a break from that. I have 2 passenger cars I'm working on and hope to post photos soon. I just got some old Champ decals to finish the Walthers coach I bought a few months back.

My daughter came home on the 7th from her 3 year stint in Sicily, all 3 (her, son-in-law, grandson) are staying with me until they find a house.

I used to work with an Aussie, Robin Wissing, who rented an office from the place I worked back in the early 70s. He was a cool guy. Last I heard he was down in Florida. He designed/ built large sheet metal shears when I knew him.

.....Now just got to read up on how to prepare a can of beans :>;)

:old dude:Just remember to puncture the can before you cook it.  I've seen the results when someone forgot to do this - It "totalled" the pie heater in the crib room. And the smell was impressive as well. The cleaner got the hose in to clean the beans off the roof. 
Another story from a another time and workplace :bg:

Pierce the can first ?? No wonder I always have trouble John....thanks for the tip!!

Look forward to seeing the coaches. You did well finding some decals. With all the extra household guests you must find modelling time is at a premium Bob.

A few of us have managed to sneak in over the years. Blame Errol Flynn... I think he started it :>)

cheers

Errol Flynn, my favorite!
If his autobiography "My Wicked Wicked Ways" was accurate he must have been a real character.

Once upon a time the O gauge used to live under the S gauge.

Tony Walsham dropped by yesterday afternoon on his way to a garden railway meet in the Hunter Valley.
Unlike most visitors who see O scale as big, for Tony my trains are tiny.
A bit chilly sitting watching the trains outdoors as neither of us were really dressed for the occasion but at least the sun shone.

I didn't take any pictures as we soon went indoors for some warming coffee and chatted in the shed later out of the wind.

So here is one I took at an Ipswich exhibition some time ago.
It shows Ron Fox's depiction of Newcastle station in the 1950's.
cheers

Hi Bob I be happy if my station turn out well like that one very nice indeed, haven't been to the Ipswich train show for years, I used to look after their  layout when they first opened Ipswich Workshop Museum while I was in the Ipswich club.
AMRA's train show next weekend wont be going, got too many appointments on this week and the following.
I have got some pics to post on the progress of my layout being busy, can't close in the bridge arches to I do the bus wiring.
Has it being cold where you are, here early morning 7 degrees warmer today, back into it tomorrow.
Tony.
