It is nice to see railway stations in NSW recreated at a smaller scale to view and appreciate.
BOOROWA RAILWAY STATION - I came across the interesting and life like Boorowa railway station model display replicating the once standing terminus station as was found at the end of the Galong/Boorowa junction. It is interesting that the Boorowa branch had the station and some sections of the track removed which there is hardly any trace left. Normally the railway track in NSW is not allowed to be removed due to the act of parliament that protects the railway perway in place.
PUNCHBOWL CARRIAGE SHED- A former south western Sydney train stabling yard now torn down and nothing remains. Red Rattlers and Blue White coloured PTC rattlers could be seen running on this display.
Ian nowdays has his own railway modelling business which keeps him busy. It was good to finally talk with him in person and his business partner - also very knowledgeable. Both came from the NSW north coast..... 5hr driving to get to the show. The small scale of some of these parts can be measured in tens of mm....as shown by what i held in my hands.. a water gin/tank.
At the back of all displays was the staging or stabling yards. Some had a few hundred items you could see.... worth $$$$$.
