Presenting the Dolly Varden Mines Railway at the 2009 Australian Narrow Gauge Convention in Sydney.



Thats myself (Dan Pickard) on the left of shot, John Hunter on the right, giving a clinic of the building of the DVMR layout, from prototype to model.



The start of the line at the wharf on Alice Arm, with Dolly Varden House and Ore Bunker.





The grade along the top of the crib retaining wall is the highline spur that feeds the ore bunker at the water front.  Company housing was located right alongside the grade.







With a bit of modelling license, these water falls were located at the 4 mile mark, the bridge was at the 16 mile mark, but they made a nice scene together.  This centre module was the transition point between Johns scenery and mine.
