However the aim of the day at the Club was to work on the Club layouts in preparation tfor the AMRA Model Railway Show on the 1st -3rd May at the Brisbane Exhibition grounds. Simultaneously we are working on the HO and N scale layouts. So the usual meeting area of the Club has been taken over by the two layouts. Both layouts are coming along very nicely. The quality of some of the buildings and scenery on both layouts is just mind blowing. I am sure that people will not know the layouts from their first appearance last year as they were both pretty bare.
On the HO layout, there is a new addition to the Austeel Shed area. It is a Film Canister. I have no idea what it is, but it seems that the film canister makes many a modern magazine article, so it must be hip to contemporary Australian modelling. So we now have one on the Club Layout. I'm sure a number of the Tuesday Nighters will be rushing to install one on their layouts as well as these guys are pretty switched on modellers. Being never one to mis a fad, of course there is already one on Cassino at Fairy Hill Loop. This is in the guise of a concrete water tank with a top on it. The Tuesday Nighters crew already knew about this.
