Apple Cove - On30 (Peter Kendall, VIC)

1-1503 grey2_skyR.jpg

Apple Cove (On30) is the latest modelling effort from Peter Kendall, with a change of scale from his usual HO work.  This quaint and colourful waterfront setting is populated with a great array of structures and mini-scenes.  The railway weaves its way through the township and tree-lined landscape, providing a connection to the busy wharf.  This compact layout demonstrates how plentiful modelling opportunities can be incorporated into a restricted size. 


Sicker Creek - On30 (Danny O'Brien, QLD)

Sicker Creek is a 1:48 scale 30" mine/shire tramway set in early 20th century Queensland, west of the Glasshouse Mountains.  Demonstrating simple operations and fine detail that is rough but well-mannered.  The layout is driven by kitbashing, scratch building and hand laying track, with an emphasis on pushing On30 as a builders scale.  This layout captures all the sunburn and sweat of a Queensland mining environment.  We welcome Danny and Sicker Creek (a family-built project) to the convention, being displayed for the first time as under-construction modules.

Kinmont & Winch no.3 - On30 (Dan Pickard & David Price, VIC)


Kinmont is a compact On30 layout, built by Dan Pickard, capturing the essence of the Australian bush.  The scenery is the dominant feature, with the peaceful landscape only interrupted by the occasional passing train.  Since its debut at the last Australian Narrow Gauge Convention, fellow operating partner, David Price, has contributed an additional module, Winch no.3, to complement the Kinmont module and add further running opportunities.  Many of David's locomotives and rolling stock have appeared on Kinmont at exhibitions, and now some of his scenery modelling will join the project.

Gravel Road is a micro layout just 600mm x 270mm, showing that even with only a little display space at our disposal, we can all build a functioning narrow gauge layout packed with scenic detail.  Pete will also be showing one or two other tiny dioramas, built for the purpose of testing for larger future micro layouts, including structure size and placement, rail size and treatment and scenic details.  Have a chat with Pete about how to enjoy all the creative process of building a layout in a micro environment.

Plus, more Layouts and Displays to be added as confirmed...
