Because my wife and I were away in our RV during May no operating session was held. June’s session was not held as well because it clashed with the Adelaide model railway exhibition held at Greyhound Park Angle Park Adelaide on June 10 – 12.
I helped out with the Adelaide Model Railroaders over the exhibition weekend. I did manage to take a few photos though.
The Adelaide Model Railroaders operating their HO scale American switching layout called Central Industry Park. The layout uses NCE DCC.
An operators view of the Central Industry Park.
Traffic on the road bridge through the Central Industry Park. The bridge is a “Scale Scenes” card kit downloaded from the internet and built by one of the members of the AMR.
This gravel crushing plant, on the Central Industry Park, scratch built during the 1970s by the late Len Opie received a lot of interest by the viewing public.
One of my favourite layouts was HO scale Kapunda. Here we see a 930 hauling a grain train past the silos.
Kapunda: 847 passing the goods shed.
830 class loco a small Alco again on Kapunda.
The HO scale “RJ Corman railroad co West Virginia cluster” used NCE DCC. The owner told me that it was based on a plan called the Virginian that was published in Model Railroader. It was an 8X4 with an add on.
Lakeside was the HO scale layout entered by the Noarlunga MRC. It was a very busy layout with lots to look at on it.
For the first time at the AMRE lego exhibited. The group was called “Southern Bricks”. I was impressed by this station done in Lego.
The South Australian Railway Modeller’s Association always impress. This year was no different with their large HO scale layout “Strathburn” Here we see the stonie headed by a 930 while another 930 class Alco is at the platform with a train of Centenary cars.
N scale: One of the ships on Triple T.
Another layout that I particularly liked was the OO scale “Eyarth” exhibited by the British Railway Modellers Australia.
A beautiful little layout was Gavin Thrum’s OO scale “Lampwick Lane” This layout was an L shaped layout going about six feet on each leg of the L.
Also I did take some video.
