    Ain't been around for while, but been doing things... slowly. :)

    Making a few dioramas for inclusion in to the Great Layout. (Garahbara MKII)

    A goods platform (scratchbuilt), with a weathered loco I picked up on E-bay for $10. :)

    Well Woodie I see you are up to your old tricks of sneaking in proto photos and claiming em' to be models. :D :D :D

    aahhh... that's a better pic I re-uploaded. Trying to fit it to the uploaded pic restrictions (640 * 480) and less than 70K it went all fuzzy. :thumb:

    And prototype?? It ain't got no bufffer, or horns!! Gotta get a detail kit for them. FLushglaze windows etc. Good to practice that sorta stuff on th E-Bay el-cheapos before attacking the prized newer possessions. :)

    Woodie, nice to have you back! :thumb:

    Your diorama is really outstanding - I had to look twice (or thrice) to be sure it was a model.

    A question, however: I simply didn't notice before - but do Australian trains really have buffers? I always thought that your trains had the same knuckle couplers like the US RRs. :confused:

    Woodie, love the ballast job and the painted rails! Looks excellant!

    Ron, Some loco classes do have buffers. This particular class has a full width buffer.

    An e-bay pic of a new one, the same. Note the full width buffer at the front.

    Nice one there Woodie, your dioramas look good as well.

    Just curious, what type of 'engine' is in the real 44 class loco?

    Hello Woodie, old friend!:wave:
    Great to see you again!
    The diorama looks great! I see your modeling is up to its usual high standards! :cool: :thumb: And I think the loco looks great for an "e-bay el-cheapo"! :cool:
    Great job! :thumb:
    Very interesting info on the 44 Class...they're quite reminescent of the Alco cab units (PA's & FA's) that were so prevalent on U.S. roads in the 50's & 60's.

    Thanks guys. :) **blushes** :D

    I've also done a grain silo and loading dock. (some might remember the slanting roof/semi circle cutout thread I started).

    Will put some pics of that up on the weekend. :)
