Temperatures are not much different then DU,
I did miss out on a 45+cm Snowfall while DU though!.

Still need to get past May 24th weekend, usually last Snowfall of Winter.

Picked up a few items at the convention and a Haskell NA at Puffin Billy gift shop.
Have a few Victorian Railways items of rolling stock and plan a diorama around what I have.

Hi Ken,

still snowing 45 cm's a fair bit then.

It is still warm here, they are are nice 26 degrees and 12 over night.
Not sure what to ware on Saturday, 11 degrees.
Be up early 60 am that morning to a very long day.

Can't wait to see you make a start on the diorama of the Victorian railways,
is it the Puffing Billy you be modelling, never been on that train, one day.

We had a train show in Brisbane last weekend,
and I bought a new loco NR class Indian Pacific colour scheme,
and gave my Sons Thomas loco to have a new replacement motor put in it,
27 years old that loco is.

I be pretty busy after this weekend,
finishing the bridge off and getting back into Camdale again.

Got 4 months to do,
so my Son's Thomas and two coaches be the first train to run on my layout,
and over the bridge to meet up with my Indian Pacific train,
on my Son's anniversary of him passing away 9-11-2017.

The diorama will likely be based on scene's of interest in Tasmania.
 
The Hercules tram line at Roseberry, Lake Rosebery,
and the railway bridge and stamp mill remains of the Bischoff Tin mill in Waratah.
 
Most of the required items I all ready have, just need it to come together in one place.

When they become available will you be picking up a set of NR #30 & 52 from SDS,
they would look great on a train.
I am tempted myself to pick up a set, need to clear trip cost off first.

Looking forward to the finished bridge and the first operation on it,
certain your son would have been thrilled to see it also.

Hi Ken ,

I had a very long busy day on Saturday, up at 4.30 am and not getting home till after 11.30pm,
didn't wait to leave the party, that is it for another three years for the next Federal election.

I look forward to seeing progress made of your Tasmanian diorama, beautiful in Tasmania,
there is another railway that you might be interested in is a rack railway north east Tasmania,
thy rebuilt all the bridges and turned it into a tourist railway.

Those two NR's you are talking about are still in stock by SDS,
the NR's I would like to have bought are out f stock,
when I was at the train show I saw a shop was selling the one I wanted NR27 Indian Pacific colour scheme,
going to buy nR 28 as well, have to wait for my birthday money.

I rang the Brisbane Library yesterday to see if they could help me with getting some drawing with measurements of the Story,
the lady put me onto a bloke and he said he can help, sending the drawing next week,
I want to get the right, even going to wire LED lighting that change colours like the real bridge does.

Some good news I have started work on Camdale again today,
first job was realine the main line track so it is looking much better now.

As soon as I resize the pics I will post them on Camdale,
thank you for the kind word about my son, yes I was trying to get him interested in model trains again,
big plan was to go DCC so he could operate the layout on his computer, was looking at NEC, Wi-Fi

Rode the West Coast Railway in 2013,
of course I also had to get the book on the Rly.
A rack Rly is way down on my list of projects, but who knows what could happen.

Playing around with some rock work and Gum trees for the diorama at present,
may need to adjust bridge abutments for the bridge
(Bischoff Mining Co Rly bridge in Waratah Tas)
I would like to use in the diorama.

Also a section of the Hercules Aerial Tram line located at Rosebery Tas,
lots of fun working thing's out.
