2011 Perth AMRA Exhibition Diorama

Below are some photos of the ‘diorama’ that I have entered in to the Perth AMRA Exhibition, which is taking place this weekend. This module is one of six that will become ‘Sutton Grange’ layout.

The two items of rolling stock feature P87 18.37mm gauge wheel sets (Northwest Short Line), and a VR prototype point (point throw by Steam Era Models). The wheel sets and constructed point work were generously supplied by fellow VR P87 modeller, Damian Chrystie. Cheers, bro.

This was all put together very quickly. However, l have learnt a great deal in the process, which will be used on the remaining 5 modules.

I will be around for much of the Exhibition weekend (held at Claremont Showgrounds). When not helping with the large Hawkesbury River Bridge layout (amazing), I’ll be undertaking some demonstrations. Feel free to drop by and chat.

Really like the disused turntable pit Jules, relly adds to a great scene.

Looks fantastic Jules! Good luck with the contest.

Cheers, Alex.

Hi Andrew and Alex,

Cheers for he kind words.

The disused pit idea came to me when I was considering how to model a branch line yard that was 'on the skids' and facing closure.

Although it might make running the J Class a little challenging.
