If it's Model Railways and it's based on NSW Railways then you know it is good. If it's based on NSW North Coast it's got to be brilliant!

Photos of the Entries in the Model Competition from the 2011 Narrow Gauge Convention
Here is a dump of some of my photos (the ones that turned out) anyway) from a collection of models submitted in the modelling competition for the 2011 Narrow Gauge Convention held at the Workshops Rail Museum at Ipswich last Saturday and Sunday.
A very nice QR DH
A great looking QR DEL
Nice Narrow Gauge Contraption
What can I say about this - WOW!
Maybe the royal wedding could have been held here?
I've been into model railways since I was very little. I had a Lego train set. When I was about 10 I purchased a Lima Train set, which included a circle of track, a steam engine and three goods carriages. When I was about 17 the urge to have a train set picked up and I have steadily increased the amount of track, locos and wagons I had to run with. I have always loved the NSW railways. I used to catch the train to school at South Brisbane and watch the Brisbane Limited in the arvo heading south to Sydney. I would also always check out Locopilly on the way home. After may years of having an uninspiring layout in my specially built layout room in the house, I gave it up to the missus so it could become a kids Play room, but for compensation I was allowed to build a shed! For the last 4 years I have been building baseboards and laying track. The layout can now be operated and the fun begins.
