    I've done a search for Geoff Nott and Leigh Creek, and olny came up with stores that sell a video of his layout. Is there any other webpage?

    Woodie, I tried a search & couldn't find the $#@! thing either!
    Here is the website for the magazine index, but GMR's 2000 isn't in the index yet. [​IMG]
    Try e-mailing Model Railroader Magazine.
    You can contact them from this site too -
    Hope this helps Woodie.

    Charlie (why do I always get you confused with George?) I have been up through the Leigh Creek part of Australia, and it one of my fav places on earth. Purely for it's remoteness and desoletness. They do an annual train journey from Adelaide to Leigh Creek/Maree with an performance of "Opera in the Outback" each year. One of the train experiences of the world. I have done that train trip (not for that occasion) and also across to Perth. Literally the middle of nowhere. One good thing about modelling Australian railways out there..... Dont have to worry about trees!! I'll put some links to modelling Australian outback on my website. There are quite a few. Have you been following "Survivor" on tele?

    Hey Woodie!
    That's interesting - I didn't know there was a real location called Leigh Creek. The Leigh Creek Lumber Co. RR I was refering to is a free-lance HO RR set in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. (nothing BUT trees - BIG ones!)
    I went back, & dug out my copy of the article, & found out that Geoff Nott lives in Sydney. (phone directory maybe?)
    As to confusing me with George - I don't know - It must be our rugged good looks, intellegence, & the fact that women can't resist us! [​IMG]
