You could also have a look at the work of Greg King and Transit Classics,
at the Rail Modeller Magazine, as the feature article.

http://www.railmodelleraustralia.com
 
While it is a free download, please consider a small donation to the magazine,
to keep it going as the running costs are horrendous.

As a disclaimer, none of that donation goes to me,
and I have nothing to do with finances, in fact I pay for my own hard copies. 

Purchasing a hard copy with postage costs would be a different proposition,
for those of you overseas from Australia.

Cheers from Australia

Hi Peter David, all


Try this link:

https://railmodelleraustralia.com/index.html

Then click on the tram,
to trigger a download of the online version of the magazine.


The link to the September/October 2021 edition,
will change when the next edition is released.

It will then be accessed from the Downloads page at:

https://railmodelleraustralia.com/downloads.html


Please enjoy a good read.
I especially liked the way the story of Brisbane's Phoenix trams was covered.

Well done the authors and the production team. :apl:  :apl:  :apl:

Hi John and all

Thanks for the kind words about our efforts.

There is a lot that has gone into the Rail Modeller Australia,
and we would like to think it is a worthwhile contribution to the hobby.

We would like some contribution back,
and a couple of bucks as a donation would do it.

If you care to contribute an article about your own layouts,
or aspects of the hobby, feel free, my email is trevorjgibbs(AT)gmail.com

I can send you a guideline for writing a layout article to possibly help you.
It is not as hard as it seems and we can help you.

We are looking for as much variety in the modelling fraternity as we can find !

Believe it or not,
we have yet to see an article on an American, European or Japanese layout,
and we cannot print what we do not have !  

Regards

Trevor

This latest card in the collection is this scene of San Francisco trolleys. 

It is a reproduction, it is getting harder to source original cards. 
All these modern cards are the "Continental," four by six inch size. 

Some dealers are kind enough to list the size of their offering,
but others do not. 

Some do not even state if the card is a "REPRO".  :td: 

Regards, Dave L.

A new Pacific Electric postcard to add to the collection.





Given how large the PE system was it is hard to find many postcards of it. 

There are several on Mount Lowe,
but not as many as I thought there should be on the main system itself.

Michael

I am not surprised.

As large as our Hershey Transit Co. was,
there has never been a postcard.

I'm trying to persuade our group,
to make some for the gift shop.

Regards, Dave
