Modelling railways around the World

I'm based in Queensland, Australia, but my personal resource collection covers several countries and types of railway. These pages will provide access to some of those resources as time and other interests (including my own modelling) permit.

One example of my own modelling is the Capricorn Sugar Rail Museum, a mini layout exhibited at AMRA's Brisbane Train Show and the Australian Narrow Gauge Convention.
