P87 Upgrade…


In the upcoming weeks to Epping Show, I will be doing a wheel exchange to Tom Rogers, Train-O-Rama, 49 class Locomotive.


This give me a chance to document it here and add the springy suspension to the loco.


I will start this week and keep the short updates coming.

maintenance is in town...

The maintenance train has arrived late on the Canowindra - Gregra line, hauled by a 44 class, the first the line has seen but will not be the last.


This shot was taken by Ian after set up of BC in his new layout room. Now neither of us are big on the night scenes but they can be quite captivating.

The Epping show is now fast approaching and some maintenance needs to be attended to as well as some new trains to be added such as the 44 and maybe a DEB set as passenger traffic seems to be on the increase.

Hooroo for now…

Hi-Tech Details

Hi Everyone,

Received some stuff in the post today. I found this stuff when I went looking for some diaphragms for my 620/720 as I don’t like the gap between cars.IMG_1573

I also picked up some brake hoses and MU brake hoses for diesels. The thing about these is they are made of rubber instead of the hard plastic we have come to expect.


Check it out at

I will see how they go.
