Two coaches scratchbuilt in 4mm scale from my own masters then castings running on Steam Era Models bogies. these were built for an exhibition celebrating the railway in Queenstown Tasmania and donated to same. Styrene and wire detailing and "Hornby" type couplers to match the stock on the exhibition layout.
My "Glenburn" layout has been fortunate to host some different runnings often for modellers who don't have their own layout at this time. I may add in more pictures as these events occur.
"Glenburn" hosted Phil Dunn's exquisite Micro Metakit model of a Bavarian S1 which other than the wheel arrangement and detailing is surprisingly close in many of the main dimensions to the VR's V Class.
Below are some pictures showing NSW rolling stock either built by or owned by Grant Djung:
This New Haven Railroad EF-1 is a brass model dating from c.1968 which was purchased in the condition shown in first two pictures above. After a fix/repaint/re-decal, it has come up quite well given the model’s age. Paint was Scalecoat Pullman Green for the body, and a mix of sprayed and acrylic black for the roof and chassis. Decals are an excellent new product by Model Memories, lenses are by MV, and the body has a finishing coat of Dullcoat.
For the layout pictures I set the loco up with the closest Victorian Railways wagons I had, however while the first was a VR version of a US pattern, they don't suit as well as a "proper" US rake would.
I had intended to give the EF-1 an occasional run on my layout "Glenburn" however sadly the layout shots show why I may well have to sell it - The pantographs exert too much pressure on the catenary leading to slippage and wire tangling, and running without pantos up just isn’t much chop. I don't want to mess with the springs or replace the pantographs as that will affect the integrity of the model. It has nonetheless been an enjoyable restoration of what to me is an attractive prototype.
A John Eastaff Models (JEM) HTT Maximum Traction Bogie tram kit with a later roof kindly supplied by JEM (from the SECV version kit) and other minor modifications to represent it during it's later M&MTB days in the mid 1930's.
