Well, after a quite busy Saturday and Sunday, today was time to go to the Sydney Model Railway Exhibition held in Liverpool, a south west Sydney suburb. Here a few pics from todays day out.

These three pics are an over view of the main hall. A combination of over 90 layouts, demonstration and trade stands set up camp for the three day (Labor day) weekend.







Below, 'Bellbird', an N scale layout featuring a variety of trains.




^ Electric Car Sheds. A HO model of Sydney surburban trains, on shed and running around. Our early surburbans are quite similar in design to the Brighton Belle electric set.


^ Red River Canyon, a small (4' x4') N scale layout with some nice low relief buildings.


^ Midway, a city-scape in N scale running trams by an automatic train reverser and by diodes in a block system.


^ A well detailed HO scale Australian farm diorama measuring about 12" square.


^ Cockle Creek, a NSWGR N scale layout.


^ 'Shelley'. A Victorian high country based layout in N scale.


^  "Model O Kits' display diorama. Apart from thr track, trains, people and trees, everything else is available in laser cut wood kits for the O/7mm gauge modeller. This supplier has just launched an awesome 7mm kit of a NSWGR Beyer Garratt AD60, in conjunction with DJH from the UK. See here - http://www.modelOkits.com


^ Above. 'Trackside Trees' cater for the Aussie modeller producing the quite common trees seen around railway yards, stations and along many lines. 

Below, 'Trackside Trees' production line. The owner produces quite a few trees over the weekend and here you can see how





Above and Below, 'Avoca', a Tasmanian Railways pre-war layout in HO scale. A very nicely sceniced model that was up for sale... $2100.00 without dcc system, $2500.00 with. Then the rollingstock was extra. Well worth every cent !



Now, it's only my opinion, but I have saved the very best to last...

'San Hedrin'. A On30 logging layout based on the 1900's Pacific Northwest of America. This was all built within 10 months ! Exquisite detailing to the maximum.









Thanks for looking. If you are in Sydney in September - October 2014, come on down and take a look !

Cheers, Gary.

I'm sure he would Alan. As can be seen, like all wire frame trees, there is a lot of work in them. His average tree (approx 8" tall) sells anywhere between $25 - $35 Au.

Cheers, Gary.

Hi Gary,

What size was the Avoca layout. It looks huge and a very keen asking price for the work that has obviously went into it.

Fantastic scenery.

Hi Toto and John,

Toto, I would say the approximate length of Avoca is around 18' - 20' and approximately 3'6" wide at the dog bone ends.

John, these pics were taken on a public holiday Monday (a day after Rugby League Grand Final Day) and I was told that the crowd whilst I was there, was down about 50% compared to Saturday and Sunday attendance.

Cheers, Gary.
