Theft at GC Model Event

I paid my annual visit to the GC Model Event today (Saturday). Not long after I got there I was hanging my ear on a conversation the guy stood next to me was having with one of the traders (Digitrains). Turns out that an opportunist theif (theives?)

I find the scenery for Petersdale so well thought out, especially liking the road servicing the far side of the station with the mound in between. Hi Josh. Thanks for the comments. With reference to the scenery on PETERSDALE aft...
