    Dropped into the New South Wales branch of the Australian Model Railway Association this arvo. Thought I should get involved in a club sooner or later! Nice buch of guys and lassies. Got the full guided tour and a cuppa tea! They have a webpage here. One good thing, it is only about 10 mins drive from my place. (5 mins from the airport if anyone is visiting in a hurry!! :cool: ) Drop back next weekend and join up I suppose. :)

    Hey Woodie
    What's an "arvo"? Anything like a "henway"?

    Arvo? Aussie short for afternoon. ummm.... what's a henway?

    A term not used (and generally unknown) in the US is "fortnight".

    Any guesses??

    Here's a few more for you:
    "fair dinkum"
    "hoo roo"

    What's a henway? Oh on the average 2 1/2 to 3 pounds.

    Catt - You stole my line!
    Woodie - Fortnight is commonly used in the US, generally in measuring the speed of our postal service, as in furlongs per fortnight.
