Just a few pictures taken at the Queensland Railways Ipswich Museum Show yesterday, lots of people and lots to look at on this beautiful Spring day.

About 2/3rds of the layouts at this exhibition were N Gauge, nice to see as I always get the feeling that up here in Queensland N Gauge is always considered the under dog.



I liked this scene and the Galloping Goose no doubt set in California with the Redwoods.



Inside the show, the loco is a QR C17 built in Maryborough Queensland in 1951, this loco is fully preserved and in full running order.



Another view of the exhibition which is held within the Workshops.



Colour Plus, this layout is called Rye Carnival lots to watch working, the kids love it.



QR DD17 Tank Loco ran two trips for the day, The Blue Baby?.



Anyone for long trains, these boys from the Darling Downs MRC run the longest trains I have ever seen, these little N Gauge loco's are amazing.



I really liked the serene slow pace of this British layout.

Thanks for posting those shots, Dave. It's interesting to see a show from outside the UK and be able to compare styles. was there much in the way of trade support?

Hi Jeff, there was a few small manufacturers and retailers there but most cater for the Local and American modellers, only saw a couple of Hornby Loco's and Wagons for sale and just one British Layout, I felt a bit like a fish out of water but its nice to see what developments are going on with our local modellers.

Our biggest Show is at the Brisbane Showgrounds in May, lots of retailers and layouts there, some hobby shops bring stock all the way from Melbourne 1,780km away also Sydney 950km.

Hi Mike yes it was a good show again this year, I started work on another N Gauge layout today, a purpose built layout to display at exhibitions which will be based on the old Qld mining town of Mt Morgan.

Dave, let me know the details of the May show (when you have them) and I'll make sure they go in the diary. It's difficult to get details of Australian shows here in the UK, but at least I can add any our members send me.

No problem Dave.  Good to see them.  What Melbourne stores were there?  Trainworld or Branchline maybe?

Hi Neil, you are right Trainworld was at this years show, Woodpecker and Casula from Sydney, I used to live in Moorabbin some time back, nice and close to Trainworld.

That would have been handy.  It's not a bad shop.

Dave, it would be nice to see an account of your build in the "personal layouts" section. We have many good layouts there, but not many of them are specifically build for the purpose of exhibiting. Good to see the specific issues such a build throws up :exclam

Hi Jeff, sorry to be late with a reply I just spent the past two days and nights in the ICU dept of our local hospital.

Here is a link to next years May Show, I was quite surprised to see they already have a website up and running, it is a good show though.

Hi Mike I have been thinking of making a small layout of Mt Morgan Gold Mine for quite some time, my wife and I spent a week there about 4 years ago, old and broken down but a photographers dream, I have a big collection of photos of the railway and surrounding scenery, should be interesting building this one.

Don't know if you know Mt Morgan but the Railway runs between the acid stained Dee River and the mine slag heaps, I love the wild colours if the river bed even though it is polluted, here is a picture.

G'Day Jeff, all being well I should be starting the layout in a couple of weeks time but I will keep the forum up to date with what is going on.

That's a great picture Dave.  Will make a nice basis for a layout.
