|This N scale stock pen near Noorinbee is exquisite, and my photo does not do it justice. I need two, larger |
stock pens on the GC, and I'll be hard-pressed to model anything this nice.
|This is a view of the long platform at Noorinbee. The signal box at the far right is shown in|
the following photos.

|The motive power for the train that I ran during the evening was this "T" class, |
accompanied by two guards vans.
|After making up my train at Genoa I had to wait for a goods train pulled by this "B" class to pass.|
|Greg was shunting coal wagons at Wingan when I took this photo.|

|This is my goods train leaving Noorinbee. I had arrived at Noorinbee via the track on the left, and then |
run around the train so I could depart in the right direction.

|A couple of N scale wagons - a cement car and a tarp-covered GY wagon. The quality of the N scale |
VR models available is staggering.

|I've delivered my loaded coal wagons to the paper mill at chandler, and I'm on my way back to |
Genoa with several empty cars.
Darren's layout ran just as nice as it looks, and I had a very enjoyable time running my goods train from Genoa to Chandler and back.
Unfortunately, the Cann River's days are numbered as Darren has sold his house and the layout is to be demolished. However, Darren hopes to host another session (or more?) before the layout comes down, and I hope to be invited over again.
Thanks for reading.
