Hobson Bay 2002


Back to DPGAL Home



Hobson Bay Model Railway Club staged their 9th Model Railway Exhibition over Easter.
The SGAL team were there.

AR Kits had a new loco on display - a Silerton 45 class. Anthony's room, a compact switching layout - no excuse for a interesting railway in the smallest of space ! Florey Springs - a fine South Australian Layout had these two nice steam locos.
SA modellers will cringe when I guess them to be a 620 and a 520 class, with some bluebird railcars behind.
Powelltown, a logging railway. Wallen, with an international star on show ! Victoria Creek.
A busy yard on Murranbilla. Florey Springs. Murranbilla.
Somehow I think that On30 NA will not go under the footbridge on Victoria Creek.... Wallen from the road, with a "B" flashing past in the background. Florey Springs, and their mine.
Wallen. Anthony's Room look great in the dark, highlighting it's size. Murranbilla, with a Y" and a "T" shunting.
TRAIN CAM !

The photo on the right is the TV view of the same scene, as seen by TRAIN CAM !

TRAIN CAM returned to Hobson's bay, and was a talking point. It belongs to their President, and I for one enjoyed what it offered. The train is the camera train, the actual loco ( this time a "C" ) then the transmitting van, followed by battery wagons. It travelled over all HO gauge track at the exhibition, with a TV monitor outside the hall for veiwing live. It was very interesting to see the layout from that perspective !

When they were not showing live feeds, they showed their club layout, impressive.



( I would really like one now ! )
