Here is another historic photo. It shows one of my CV 4 wheel vans under construction a couple of years back. This one is out of styrene.


The NSWGR persisted with such unsuitable British type designs long after they had started using bogie stock in the 1800's and  examples were still running in the 1970's.

Today the weather turned nice after the last week where -8C starts and maxing out at 5C convinced me that an indoor layout would be much more sensible at this time of year.

An hour spent out of the wind watching trains was possible today as the temperature made it back into the teens.
Here we see another load of coal heading for Ten Town while the railmotor passes with passengers up on the main line soon to alight at Seven Mile Mulga.

Hi Bob, I would think that the vast majority use Peco code 124 and that is what I am using this time. It is a bullhead section and while incorrect for Australian railway track it has shown it can handle the UV levels and weather present here over many years on outdoor layouts. Peco also make a flat bottom code 143 that represents modern pandrol clipped rail. I have a couple of yards of that and a couple of yards of Atlas (donated to me) in one siding. Outdoors I decided I would ere on the side of known reliability rather than scale looks. I purchased mine directly from Hattons in the UK although it is regularly available over here.
Indoors I see many are now using Micro Engineering which would be very close to local construction in the era I model.

regards
Bob

Given the road closures out of town at the moment I guess it was inevitable that rail travel on my line was also suspended.

Hi Bob,
I think you might need a rotary plough, a wedge plough simply isn't going to cut it.

Have you added the antifreeze to the radiators on your Tin Hare and 48 Class yet? :bg:
