This layout has been exhibited twice before. It is positioned very high in relation to the viewers. The layout has some very inspiring scenery and is presented in the shadow box state. So if you are short, you will not like it. As shown by the pictures here, your view the layout is at almost eye level. As the two owners are taller than average height, it is meant for them to get maximum enjoyment out the layout. Those shorter than this, may struggle to get the full benefit and impact from its design. It was not until late on the Sunday when they were packing up that I got to see water puddles located below track height on the far side of a drain. There is hidden detail everywhere. I don’t think you can do much better in the detail department. This layout is a credit to these boys. The colours were spot on. My aim is to try and get near to this level of presentation on my home layout. We will see. I think I'm starting a long way behind.
The second layout which only had two modules on display was Exeter Bank. I understand it is owned by Warren Herbert and Rohan Ferguson (I think?).

I do recall seeing Exeter Bank in Brisbane many years ago which I understand may have been its only showing in full. It was also very nice. On the Sunday arvo, while helping to clean up a bit, we were lending a hand in putting the two display modules back into their trailer and in doing so we had to remove some of the other modules. Boy did they look good as well. I cannot wait until this layout hits the Exhibition scene again, and at a place that I can get to – read Brisbane or Toowoomba.
