    Default Photos taken at Hamilton (New Zealand) Model Railway show (21-23 October 2017) (1)

    Herewith some images of various layouts that were being exhibited at the Hamilton Model Railroaders annual show held on 21-23 October 2017. As can be seen there were a variety of scales and a variety of themes .

    I trust that they will be of interest.

    (Because the site will only allow me to post 10 images at a time, I will post another group shortly).

    Update: A further six images appear in another post further down this thread.

    Love the small "self-contained" layouts. I can watch the trains go around forever on those!

    As promised, herewith some more images from the Hamilton 'show:

    No, you are NOT seeing things; this is indeed a 'Smurf-themed' layout (in On30 no less)!!! ('Nuff said!!). It was being maintained at the time the photo was taken which explains the gap between the two halves.

    OO 'Child-drive'.

    This little layout was brought along by an 11-year-old boy and is all his own work. He travelled on one of our long-distance passenger trains and was 'hooked' on trains (Especially model trains) as a result. His Dad came along to keep an eye on the lad, but what you see is all the boy's work. Kudos to the 'Club for inviting him.

    'N'. An unusual 'Dog-bone' shaped layout running mainly Tomix 'Thomas' stock.
