G'day all,

I decided to take my boys (and missus) along to another Sydney exhibition on the past weekend. It wasn't a large exhibit with only 12 layouts from N, HO and EM gauge and 7 trade stands. Personally, I thought it should have been bigger and better promoted, but for The Hills district in North Western Sydney, I guess it wasn't that bad, just not enough layouts to view. Anyhow, here are some pics of the layouts featured, but not all 12 of them.

Enjoy.



1. Wallerawang Junction. HO scale model of a real location just across the Blue Mountains in western NSW, where the Mudgee branch departed the Western Line. An excellent backscene used, as anyone who has been there will recognise the Hotel Royal...



2. The beautiful sandstone station building at Wallerawang Junction. The real building today houses a cafe/antiques shop.



3. Hills Model Railway Societies very own N scale layout, South Bend & Hilltop Railway. Sorry about the blurry pic, but it does go to show the length of trains the club runs. The ore train would have been easily 15' long...



4. Epping Model Railway Club's layout, Brisbane Water. A HO scale layout based on the NSW Central Coast town of Gosford.



5. Anothe pic of Brisbane Water. Some excellent landscaping and detailing.



6. Buffalo Junction. An N scale layout based loosely on somewhere in the USA. Neat little layout built as a 3 level spiral passing loop.



7. Oddwalls. A NSW country based layout built with the transition era (steam to diesel) in mind.



8. The bridge on the layout Oddwalls. This style of bridge would have replace the old timber trestle.



9. Once again, the children who visited had a layout to play with, Zeppenfeld HO/OO scale U-drive layout. Even my missus had a play...!



10. King's Loop. An N scale layout dipicting a main line passing loop in country NSW. The far end has a descending spiral which makes for interesting viewing.



11. Bridport South. A unique mixed gauge (EM scale) point to point layout based on the GWR 7' broad gauge and standard gauge in one, based around 1890. All hand layed track with very complicated point work.



12. Another view of Bridport South. The bridge does open as does the coal dump tilt (into boat). Excellent layout.

Now, keeping the best to last...



13. Smugglers Cove. An excellent layout in On30. A 2'6" narrow gauge railway set in the New England area, north eastern USA. This amazing layout took only 9 months to build...!



14. All layouts need that finishing touch.. A little touch up of paint on the ropes mooring the boats to the quay.



15. The level of detail on Smuggler's Cove is second to none. The pine trees in the pic are shaped balsa wood trunks, with pickled fine leaf 'asparagus fern' foliage. All buildings are card and/or timber built sub frames covered in coloured card. This pic just oozes atmosphere.

Hope you enjoyed these pics.

Cheers, Gary.

Some excellent layouts there but Smugglers' Cove certainly tops the lot.  Thanks for showing them to us Gary.
