Stockyards at Coolamine

My project for this past summer has been trying to get the Coolamine area completed. The last major build I needed to do, was the stockyards. It was a more complex build than it looks as I made working gates and there seemed to be a zillion nbw castings to install. 

With it now bedded in and the grass growing like it should, I am pleased how the scene has finished up. A few more small details to add, this section of the layout will be complete.

A new Garratt at Puffing Billy

I was in Melbourne this past weekend and heard that the newly restored Garratt locomotive NGG16 129 was running in regular service. I didn't need another reason to head up to Belgrave to ride behind it.

It sounded terrific and looks magnificent.
