Meet at Blackbutt at 11am for visit to Chris Roberts'. Coming from Brisbane, turn right after the monument, not before it, the pub is on your left. Park in the middle of the road, same as last time. Go to the bakery etc, then we proceed to follow Chris to his place. Coming from the north, turn left before the monument, with the pub on your right.
On display will be 2" scale traction engine; Austins; Triumphs; Land Rovers and Hornby 2 and 3 rail displays. A 009 layout is under construction, but the inland rail to Melbourne may well be finished first. And you will get to drive a 5" railway in and out of the trees. Below is a YouTube video for a driver's eye view of the track.
A BBQ will be available for those who want it. Tea and coffee will be available and there is plenty of water an parking. BYO food. Please bring chairs. Special call out for all the Austin Counties cars to prove a point to the UK Counties Club.
