Re: Hi from Australia

Also, if you can get in before the end of June, you'll knock 10% off the price.

And Hi Pete, I'm not sure why it's called New Railway Modellers as there are so many who know plenty. :)

Re: Australian Hobby Shops.

I went to Austral Modelcraft and was impressed not only with the range and variety of their stock, but also their willingness to chat and give some insight into their own experiences. Which is why you often can't get in the door for all the old men lounging around the checkout counter :P Yep, and I...

Re: Directional Lighting (class 58)
