Commings and Goings

Hi all, just a quick update about my trains. I have now sold all my American trains except for the Santa Fe loco, and even that's got a person interested in it. I am also in the process of finalising a payment for my Life-Like Australian trains, money from which I will use to but more TraileRail trailers.

On another note, what I used my money from my American trains for was for a pack of Auscision RQIW container wagons. I ordered pack RQIW-2, which included wagons RQIW 60319X, 60321N, 60323X, 60334C, 60338P. Here is a photo:

The train now looks like this:

Also the photography page is updated.

Cya later.

Photography Section Updated

I have updated my photography section with the best photos of todays trip to Port Kembla.


Today, Mark came down to the coast to do some trainspotting with me. He bought his 80 class and 6 cement tankers.

Here are some photos:

The 80 class is an Austrains 8011 that has been renumbered, and the cement tanks are AR Kits NPRY kits.

New Loco!!!

For my birthday on the 9th October, I got my parents to buy me a TrainOrama 4483 in western division tuscan. It runs well, but there is an unusual noise when it runs flat end first. Nothing a good inspection won't fix though. It will run with my 4903 and 12 NOFF wagons.
