A place to follow the progress of Eddie's Model Railway Lay-out from conception to completion. Also a place for me to store and collect ideas, hints, links to suppliers and to other blogs and web-sites to help us along the way.

Eddie wins First Prize
Eddie entered a competition to build a kit building which he received from the W.A. branch of AMRA. He put a lot of time and effort in building his pair of semi-detached houses, garages, yards and gardens complete with a vegie patch but never in a million years thought that he would win a prize. When we visited the club-rooms to view all the buildings on display, his had won the "00" gauge prize because he had thought to add rolled paper guttering and downpipes to the houses. The kit was good but did not include guttering or downpipes so he made them and painted them black and they really did look great. Congratulations Eddie, you did a super job and the prize was well deserved.
Here are the houes from the front, back and above, looking down on the back yards. These will no doubt go onto his 00 gauge layout once it is finished. Other people have a front lounge room - we have a front model railway layout room!!
