 The Phillip Island & District Railway Modellers Inc. have found a permanent home at last !
 Work has started on the New Layout
 The frame work is going up
 Each week it gets bigger,
 &  Bigger !
 It certainly is looking good !
Watch this Space & we will keep You up to date with our Progress !

23 - 4 -2017       SEE  PHOTOS BELOW & PROGRESS REPORT   It's all happening at the Club.

 Pete's Report:-

Probably a dozen or so members passed through the doors today, some came early, some late, some left early, some late.  No clocking on with this club.

Progress not as spectacular as last week as we got into the nitty gritty of squaring the base frame to fit the sheets, and laying out the bulbous ends.  However, those of us still there at the end looked at the results and declared it a good day's work.  Others took piccies and these can probably be found somewhere.

Next week we get to set the boards at the right heights and grades.

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.
