Model Train Expo Brisbane 2009

It's a long weekend here in Queensland. I saw in the papers that there is a Model Railway Expo. Well I thought! Somewhere to go. However my better half was not at all enthusiastic to go, so I phoned my mate Martin, who is building a model railway in his den. He was working this weekend but was quite happy to have a couple of hours off to come along. So I picked him up at his workplace and we headed to the RNA Pavilion where the show is held. I was under strict instructions from Diane: "Don't buy anything!!" 

Martin is enjoying the exhibits

Lots of great exhibits

Steam trains, bridges...

more bridges..

.. an Australian Outback scene

Even the London Underground is present

...or overcrowded trains

Me, drooling. "I know dear.. I'm not buying anything...
