Main line track laying on the HO Layout is progressing at a great pace! The guys have found cans of soft drink make the perfect weights for holding the track in position while the glue dries. Fortunately we have many full cans on hand in the storeroom as we sell soft drinks when open ot public on Sunday afternoons (and Wednesdays during school holidays).

G Scale Progress

RailFest is only a couple of months away and the outdoor layout has to be up and running by then! As a result, Harry Gleeson is putting in extra time getting it completed and isn’t letting some of the wet stuff stop him — good on you Harry!

G Scale Construction Commences

Following the removal of the old pond area of the G Scale layout at the front of the club, construction of the new steel framing for the replacement layout has now commenced.

The old layout was showing its age and was becoming increasingly difficult to maintain. The new layout will be of much more durable construction and should last many more years!

Also shown in this update are some Mineral Resources locos heading in to the UGL loco works for servicing down the access siding that runs alongside the club.
