DELEGATE or And now for something completely different part 2

As I had not visited Peter Street for sometime, I made the trip to the other side of Port Stephens on Thursday to see how he has progressed with his Victoria Railways cross border line from Orbost Victoria through Delegate to Bombala ,where there were exchange sidings, in southern New South Wales and ultimately to Cooma and Canberra.

He has been rather busy with the landscaping and has scratch built a VR cattle and sheep race which has detail down to the bolts and hinges on the doors and gates. He has yet to build the sheep and cattle yards, fantastic modelling. I hope the photos that were taken do justice to Peter’s work.

The day before he took delivery of the new Eureka Models R class locomotive. It ran very well during trials ,obviously needs weathering a bit but we’ll do that down the track. The Y class 0-6-0 Peter scratch built over a period of about 18 months with an excellent outcome achieved. The Walkers rail motor is from Auscision Models and is outstanding.

  1. An altogether higher class of modelling going on here, Peter. That railcar is shockingly good. It’s beautifully finished but to be honest I could say that about every component of those images there. Certainly one of those layouts where all the elements gel perfectly. I hope I can produce something near as good when I finally get the opportunity.

      Hi Dave thanks for your kind words I’ll pass it on to Peter S. He is in his 80th year and still has unbelievable enthusiasm for the hobby I have certainly learnt a lot from him
      All the best Peter, too many Peters
