After returning home after a great weekend at the New England Convention Armidale where meeting up with old friends and making new ones was fantastic. Bullenbung Creek was operating along with two narrow gauge layouts. The displays, clinics and lectures were of a high standard and  has taught me that it’s never too late to learn a new approach to modelling no matter what the prototype.

On the Sunday of the weekend I spoke to Andrew Ottaway who showed me Stephen Johnson Models new 2AA bogies kit which take Steam Era Models 10.5 dia wheels x 23.8 mm axles  The kits are available from and retail at $15 posted. I have started building these bogies where time must be taken to read the instructions thoroughly, below is a photo of the progress so far and the instructions.
