There are so many excellent scenes on John Dew's Granby that it's difficult to select just one as my choice for POTM but I thought this one looked rather appealing.  It was apparently taken in 1948 but John has done an excellent job of recreating it today :



It can be found here:  https://yourmodelrailway.net/gallery/434/434_020000_210000000.jpg

I entered a newer version below! 

I’ll add this amazing modelling work from Wombat Creek into the mix. Some fine modelling has gone into this.

This one for me. I love the old Bedford in the background. They were known as 'pramhandles' on account of the useless bar across the front. So much atmosphere in this layout.

Tough choice…. Luxted is very good but Claus’s Flinders Street Station with the tram in the foreground gets my vote.

Thank you for voting for my picture. I am very honoured.

The story behind the picture is as follows:


I have built model railways for many, many years. During this time I have had a few layouts. The last one, though, sat dormant for 20 odd years. Instead I got involved with a heritage railway, building tracks in scale 1:1 and running real trains. In 2014 my wife and I relocated from Denmark to Australia (by train, of course). The rolling stock and buildings went into storage, and the tracks were given to a model railway club.


During our travels towards Australia I came up with the idea of an Australian layout, which could be portable and in a limited space. So I thought trams would be suitable. I didn’t know much about model trams, but how hard could it be? Well, perhaps not too hard, but prices of tracks and trains/trams have gone up a fair bit during the last 25 years.


Anyway, I knew I wanted to model the key intersection of Flinders Street and Swanston Street in Melbourne. A feature of the intersection is of course Flinders Street Station (and Young & Jackson Hotel). At the moment Wombat Creek doesn’t have a railway, so the station became ‘Wombat Creek Bank and Gold Exchange’. The construction began during the 2nd lockdown of Melbourne in 2020, which meant travel restrictions. I couldn’t go into town. Instead I went to the internet. I got a floorplan of the station and managed to calculate the width of the façade. An approximately height came from a drawing of the façade. Unfortunately the drawing wasn’t too accurate! Instead I relied on Google Streetview and other images.


The construction of the Bank took a long time. A lot of features had to be added. I also got tired of the building from time to time and started other projects. But finally it is almost finished (still waiting for the right clock). It is not a 100% accurate model of the real station, but close enough.


I am glad you liked the photo. Once again – thank you!
