At the last general meeting (September), member Darren Thomas passed on some interesting information he gathered on his recent trip to the 2012 Modelling Railways of South Australia Convention in Adelaide. Darren’s passion is modelling the railways of South Australia and he presented the following for anyone interested:
- — “Broad Gauge Bodies” (click on the logo to go to their website). A useful source of modelling materials — particularly those modelling broad gauge prototypes, both South Australian and Australian in general.
- http://railwaykits.net/ — Web site for a variety of electronic kits for model railways available for purchase from Aztronics.
