My Model Interests

I'm currently stuck with several model interests. They can be broken down into three main categories:
1) Wisconsin Central -1990s
2) NSW Transition Era -1960s
3) NSW Modern Era -Mid 1990s to mid 2000s.

I enjoy all three for various reasons, but the NSW modern era is probably my favourite, as that is what I have grown up with, and there are some great RTR models now on the market. My main interest in this era is National Rail intermodal and steelink trains, as well as QR National, and other small fleets such as SSR and CFCLA.

With no place to currently build a layout, I have been focussing on improving the locos and wagons. All my rollingstock is fitted wth Kadee 5s or 148s and have metal wheels. I have been progressively weathering everything when time permits. The rollingstock is either purchases as RTR or as kits.

All my locos are fitted with DCC decoders, and some with sound. Over the next few months I hope to get all the CVs sorted out and have everything speed matched.

For now, the my blog will focus on the models and weathering. Hopefully we will see the start of a layout before the end of 2010.

Time for a new shed (Train Room!)

This week has seem the demolition of the existing shed - which was no good for model trains due to rodents, damp, and vegetation. 

A new 4m x 12m shed will be going up later this month, with fully insulated walls and roof, and walls lined with plywood.

Once that is finished, it will be time to move in Wills St.
