For a long time I've harboured visions of grand model railway empires, stretching for (scale) miles and miles. I have very fond memories of the now defunct Flaxton Barn model railway at Mapleton, and another "big tin shed" display near Beenleigh/Beaudesert.
And last night, I took delivery of the first step in building my own empire:
It doesn't look like much yet, because it's the unassembled kit for a T-Trak N scale single module. But hopefully, when it's finished it'll look something a little like this:
That's one of many sets of grain silos on the Western Downs - each little town had them, all right beside the rail line for ease of transport to the big smoke.
So watch this space for further updates. And who knows, maybe in 30 years I can take early retirement and let people walk through my shed looking at my own little empire.
