Hi Mr Shelley Railway Builder,This is the most facinating railway building site I have ever seen. Your attention to detail is astounding....!Aye, you should move the missus and dogs out so that they do not mess up the project. Some hard sacrifices will have to be made. Ok, let the missus in to cook and then back to the shed again!!
Hah! Thanks & Good luck with your modelling. Cheers, Andrew
Love your site and both the articles you have had published.Can yu tell me a mere NSWman where I can get info on Vic trestles.I am going to attempt Myrtleford area layout.CheersGraham Southam
Hi Graham,Thanks for your compliments, good to hear it's of interest.I have hard copy drawings for NG trestles of varying pile spans, and have been provided some scans of BG bridges. Will confirm with the donator that it's OK to send through some scans which should be a start.Myrtleford's a great spot. Good luck with it, and am keen to hear how you go.Cheers, AndrewPs. I'm a mere NSWman also.
Andrew, I agree that this site is astounding, the detail is terrific.I noticed that you have modelled a "swing door/Tait" consist, and that is exactly what I wish to do (returning to modelling after 40 year hiatus). Where would I be able to obtain some basic drawings of these to start with? Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.RegardsRichard Hubbard
Hi Richard,Thank you for your kind compliments and apologies for the delay in coming back to you, I have been on leave.The Victorian Model Railway Society published a book of plans some years ago, though the editions were limited and the books are hard to come by. Peter J Vincent has good copies of the original VR plans at his site, entering his name on a search engine should take you straight there. If you have any problems let me know and I will run you off a copy of the ones I have.Cheers, Andrew
