Hi all,

Here I have a few pics from the 50th Sydney Model Railway Exhibition (this weekend, Sept 29 - Oct 1). This is the biggest event held to date with 108 trade stands and layouts combined. I did not post all pics as some of the layouts at the show have been posted previously, such as Smugglers Cove, Wallerawang, Waterfall. Previous pics can be found under '33rd Hills Model Railway Exhibition', under Model Railway Shows. Enjoy.


Maryborugh Railway Station. Scratchbuilt in HO scale from original photos. All the stone footings were made from scale moulds and all the windows/doors/wall mouldings/chimneys from layered styrene. The brickwork comes courtesy of Slaters. All floor textures in the building are photographed and scaled down from the real station.


Etched brass gates in HO scale, in the main entrance to Maryborough Railway Station.


Boggy Creek, a G scale layout that oozes atmosphere. A very well detailed diarama style layout.


Motive Power on Boggy Creek.


There is a reason the owner of this layout named it Boggy Creek... More excellent detailing.


Broxburn Sidings. A HO scale layout of a fictitious area in NSW, displaying the Manchester Model Railway Clubs, 'Alex Jackson' coupling system.


Another pic of Broxburn Sidings. Note the green LED in the guards lamp. Very impressive, very small...


Coffs Harbour Railway Modellers (new exhibition) Layout showcasing what can be done with DCC. Odd pic this one, an American log train passing an English scene... 'anyone for cricket, followed by a pint ?' This club runs almost anything, from US, UK & Aust, from various eras, all with sound.


Cricket at one end of the layout to a (typical US style) boat builders shed at the other. Good detail regardless.


From rail to sail on the Coffs Harbour Railway Modellers Layout. Once again, good detail.


Sydney Lego Train Club layout, running NSW locos, rollingstock and even a few of our suburban double deckers !


Jembuicumbene, a HO scale NSWGR layout. The owners of this nice layout pride themselves on running steam engines only, not a diesel insight !


Another pic of Jembuicumbene. Typical Aussie houses (possibly railway cottages) of a country NSW country town.


Sydney Central railway Station in N scale. Excellent in every sense, including Belmore Park, seen in left of pic. The level of detail in this model is 'second to none', from period trains (red rattlers) to the buses and signage etc.


The Suburban Lines from Central Station (rear of pic) heading towards the underground stations of Museum and Town Hall in foreground. Anyone who has been to Sydney in the last 30-40 years would recognise Elizabeth Street on the left hand side.


Southern Revisited. A compact OO scale layout (10'8" x 3'4" or 3.2m x 1.0m), depicting a fictitious station based on Southern Railways. A nice little up and over, roundy-roundy, single line with a branch running off to a hidden engine yard.


Dirt Steelworks. A HO scale German layout featuring a Steel Mill with all the goodies. Towards the top left hand corner, although out of shot is an Ore Loading Plant, which was continually loading wagons to be delivered to the mill, pictured with the 3 coloured signals in front.


Rails In The Garden. A G scale Live Steam layout (pictured outside, undercover) featuring some beautiful locos from Shays to the Flying Scotsman. All locos are fired by gas, methylated spirits or coal. Its dual guage track, one at 32mm - inner rail, 16mm to 1 foot and the other track, 45mm can run Guage 1 and LBG models.

Below are three pics of some very nice (inspiring) models which don't require to much space which would look great on any layout.


A nicely detailed cement transfer plant in HO scale on an unfinished layout.


Steel transfer yard with overhead gantry.


A nicely detailed and weathered coaling tower in HO scale.

Cheers, Gary.

Wow!
Thank you for sharing the pictures, Gary.
Some brilliant work included there.
I'm fascinated with Boggy Creek - my kind of details.

Yes, some fantastic modelling there.
The two 'big' stations are superb.

There is certainly no shortage of modelling skill in Australia. Beautiful pictures of some great layouts. Some of the N gauge photographs are almost unbelievable. Great work.
