Where Are We All?

Recommended Posts

Given the size of Australia (and do we include our mates from across the 'dutch'), it might be worth knowing who is based where, so that we can identify who is local to who.Happy to start the ball rolling.

 

I'm Jon and I live in Kellyville, North West Sydney. Anybody else nearby?

  

Hook turns are pretty simple to do really.  More of a problem is figuring out which intersections you need to do one at and which you don't before you get there.

 

Anyway, I'm in Castle Hill, NSW and run a selection of Hornby Dublo 3 rail (with a couple of Trix Twin locos thrown in for a bit of variety).

I live in Rouse Hill, NSW. Majority of my trains are British OO but I have a small collection of Lima models, including the XPT (original colours) 44 Class (Tuscan Red) and 42 Class (Indian Red) locomotives. I'm also opting for an Auscision V set, hopefully in the Blue Goose colours (black and yellow L7's).
