Close up of the Cafe and Post Office. By the way don't park outside the Post Office as the Local Constabulary likes to give out tickets
The Cafe - What is the Special?

Well done to all the entrants and of course thanks to the judge - John Guest from Horizon Hobbies at Warner (our local Hobby Shop), who makes time every December to come along and undertake the judging.
Getting ready for the Meeting. The Executive. in the new 12m x 12m extension.
Some of the Rabble! This is where the new HO layout will go exactly where the chairs are.
During the afternoon it started to rain, and rain and rain. Didn't it bucket down. It was torrential at times. The creek down the back was flowing quite well when we left.

Back in my shed today I wired up the Staff Machines for the Fairy Hill to Cassino Section, with 8 panels in this section there was a lot of soldering. This was followed by the Cassino to Old Cassino Section with its two panels. I also wired up the section from Cassino North Fork to Old Cassino, but I did not install the power supply for this section. That should take about 10 minutes next weekend.
Before I got to the shed, I finally got around to installing the black strapping around about 10 coils of steel. They look quite good, but the strapping could have been slightly narrower.
