I had Friday off and was checking my email and facebook feeds early in the morning when I discovered that Aurora Trains has received another shipment of Auscision according to his facebook. I could see that my long-awaited Coil Wire carriers had arrived. So while watching some catchup TV later that morning, after I had already spent an hour on the phone for work, I received a call from George and he advised that my models were in. I advised I already knew that and so upon finding out that he was in the shop, I dropped everything and went over to pick them up.
So here are a few detail photos around the Loop.
No Doubt this was where one of the water columns was in steam era days.
The point levers into the disabled wagon siding
Someone has been very diligent doing the painting in white and yellow.
The signal levers up close
A derail down the siding at the clearance point.
Very nice point rodding.
So looking down the loop we see this shot.
Something in the perway/disabled wagons siding.
Oh Look. It can't be towed towards Brisbane.
Let's check out the springs. Looks like it is loaded.
Let's note the wagon code and number.
But wait, there is more.
Shot of the butter box container
This end has a coupler.
Not wanting to waste the time, I tried to take a few scenic shots and hopefully these can be stiched together for pasting onto wall behind my Glenapp Loop.
Now I had to also show this photo blown up a bit. That shed on the side of the hill is a ripper. I think it might have had an accident. Who said you can't have one like it on your layout?
A great view of a shed in the distance behind Glenapp Loop.
