Hi all,

Don has bugged me a few times for this, so I've finally got some proper shots to tell the story.  Going back some 2 years ago now, myself and a fellow Aussie modeller, and great mate, John Hunter, decided on the challenge of building the Dolly Varden Mines Railway as an On30 exhibition layout, taking a much more prototypical approach then the mines have previously been represented in a model format.  We are both scenery and structure blokes, so the fact that DVMR was a 3' narrow gauge railway, and we were doing it in 0n30, was one of the minor prototype changes we made (6" difference from side on isn't particularly noticable anyway!!!).

Photos and more of the story will follow over the course of the next few days, so stay tuned...
