    Hi All,

    Just a quick hello from Newcastle NSW. I'll chat more when I have time.

    Actually talked to a couple of you guys down at the Epping/Rosehill show.

    I have 5 different layouts

    First is British OO layout based very non-literally in an imaginary area just north of London in the 1930-1970s
    It is in a shed 17.5m long , and has a two track main with 60mm of track in each, plus a suburban good line with about 80m of track
    It started out as pure LNER, then a couple of LMS and Southern steam trains crept in.
    I then took a liking for British HSTs..
    Here is a link to a web site I created but haven't updated for a while.
    http://members.optusnet.com.au/~gradds55/Gradsden_Central/pictures.html
    Lots of pics, and some videos etc

    Second layout is a transportable N-gauge Swiss layout based on a mix of the Albula and Bernina lines.
    The web site for it only has development pictures (hopefully will get around to doing something about that some day)
    Here is a video link to a run around the layout, taken at the Our Town model show last year

    and a second video of a beer train rushing around the layout (an earlier video so the middle part of the layout is missing)


    I also have a 10.5m long "dogbone" layout designed for Japanese high speed trains

    A small experimental Z-gauge layout

    and I am currently working on a 9.2m long 4 track N-sale pseudo-American 1930s-1980s layout.

    Cheers,
    I'll try to get more pics soon
