Modelling the Railways of Queensland Convention
« on: October 26, 2018, 11:14:01 am »
Two weeks ago I travelled to Brisbane for this event.
There wasn't much steamy about the convention itself, though there were a couple of models on display and a lecture on scratching your own steam loco. No current trader at the event had any steam locomotives for sale, certainly - kit or RTR.

The next day, however, was a running day for the Queensland Pioneer Steam Railway. We went along for a ride:
