    Hi, I'll be there. it is only about 5 mins drive for me as I live quite locally. There is always plenty of parking as there are not quite as many coming to the train show as there are for the caravans or races!. However, it really is a walk over the road to the station, so maybe the train is a good idea. if you are in Langwarrin then Frankston line?
    I prefer the Sun morning, but can fit in with your plans, if you like.
    I think that we are the only Melb based on this forum, so it may be only us.
    if you want to write up a show report, then please remember to add the show to the calendar first. Cheers and looking forward to meeting you, Bill.

    Whatever is a fair price. I'll bring it with me and you can make a reasonable offer, if you are OK with that.
    It seems as though we may be closed down by the mods, even though we are talking generally.
    Not having a great day at the moment, so having this thread shut would just be a perfect end to it!!!

    sounds like a plan to me. although Im not good at making offers.. I sometimes make jaws hit floors

    We'll sort the price. I think I also have a reverser block switch thing somewhere so I'll see if I can find that and bring it along.
    BTW, what do you model, US, Aus or what? I have some barely used US rolling stock in varying degrees of disuse and bits removed for other projects. They are 'scrap' value mostly. If you wish, I can bring them along and you can take a look. Bill.

    Hey Bill.
    I model USA, SP/Cotton Belt, NS, DRG&W... I got a stack of stuff I've bought over the years to clear out, which I started to inventory on the weekend in Excel. Yet to find where I've hidden most of my stuff!
    Gawd its going to be expensive DCC'ing all these

    Default I'm another one!

    G'day Guys, You can count me in!
    I suppose a lot of us are simply focused on our modelling, but having an Australian thread could be useful for clarifying the where and what fors of `translating' U.S.A. products into local equivalents plus a chance to have names to faces etc at exhibitions etc.
    Cheers, Andrew G.

    Thanks for the 'modification'. Caulfield? No, a bit too far for a weekend, although I may be in the area later in the year....
    I'm sure everyone will enjoy themselves.

    Bill: Are you exhibiting any of your models there?
