christmas past, cricket and new blood

As these thoughts are being typed, it is a fortnight before Christmas Day. Traditionally, many youngsters were introduced to railways with a train set as a Christmas present. Often, the present was really for dad, but the credit was always placed with the youngster who ‘wanted a train set’. There is little doubt that many readers got their start this way, indeed for those of my vintage and older, the train set may even have been clockwork. I had the added advantage that an uncle was a Hornby Club member, so my parents had some good guidance. Then, train sets were used to promote the festive season. More than one shop window in the city of Sydney included a continuously operating train. I am sure it was common all around this…

lambing flat (beecroft version)

History The version of Lambing Flat described here had its beginnings in a module, featuring the Wombat Flour Mill, that I built in 1984 and first displayed at the Modelling the Railways of NSW convention in August of that year at the old AMRA (NSW) clubrooms in Rockdale. There had been other NSWGR-inspired Lambing Flat layouts, most of which never got beyond the bare board and track stage, dating back to 1977. When I moved to Burwood in 1983 my modelling interests had finally ‘gelled’ into a specific interest in NSWGR ‘pioneer’ branch lines and the locomotives and rolling stock that ran on them, rather than the ‘generic’ NSWGR theme that I had been previously pursuing. This, combined with a major advance in my modelling skills, brought about by the inspiration and mentoring…

why ‘lambing flat’?

Lambing Flat is the old name for Young, a largish country town on the South West Slopes of NSW, and the location in which I grew up. While I did want to model the railway system I grew up observing (the Blayney/Demondrille line and branches), I did not want to model a specific location on the line, as this would restrict me too much in what I could (legitimately) run on the layout. By modelling an imaginary location, but keeping to the ‘rules’ of NSWGR design and practice, I could have the best of both worlds.…

planting a vineyard

My HO scale layout is of NSW outline, but of no specific period or location; I just like model railways and ‘making things’. As it happened, I had a corner on the layout that looked bare, giving me the idea that a vineyard would be a worthwhile addition for that spot. So I set about constructing one, a process that proved to be easy and utilised available materials. Pre-planning The first decision to be made is about the length of each row of grapevines and how many of them. Obviously the space available will help one to arrive at that answer. In my case, I constructed six rows, 15mm (a scale 4'3" – 1.3m) apart. From observations when visiting vineyards, I estimated that they need to be 20mm high (about 5'7" –…
