Bus Trip to Peter's On30 Layout, Sunday 6-04-2014

It was a great day out on Sunday 6th. April. The bus left Phillip Island at 11 am. picking up Club members along the way to Leongatha.  We had lunch at Mc.Donald's and then on to our destination, the On30 Layout designed and built by Peter Annison.
 On30 is O scale trains running on HO track,  this is real narrow gauge modelling, the track gauge is 30 inches, which equals 2 foot 6 inches; just the right size for Puffing Billy modelling! Here are some pictures of the outing.

This is where it all happens


 A beautiful Afternoon Tea and then farewell until the next visit.

A Very Generous Donations to our Club by the Locke Family.

 
These pictures are of the Layout that was Donated to us by the Locke Family, late last year. The pictures were taken at our Train Show on the 11th. & 12th. of January 2014, as you can see we have added a nice blue skirt around it and a monument on the hill, in the back ground. One of our Members has taken it home to give it a bit of TLC until its next Show.
The Layout was built by Geoffrey Locke and he is very proud of it, as most of it is hand made. We would like to thank the Locke Family for their very generous donation.
