My Philden Coast layout is safely back home after travelling to its second model railway show in the space of two weeks. This time I ventured north up the Bruce Highway for the Sunshine Coast Model Train & Hobby Expo held on Saturday 2nd September, 2023.
|Fellow modeller and good friend Anthony Veness was my partner-in-crime for the day!
|SSR's T363 was the yard shunter for the day in Philden Harbour.
|I think Anthony enjoyed running his SSR locomotives throughout the day!
|T363, 44204 and the short address bandit GM22 in the refuel tracks.
|Beside me were these 2 brilliant little pizza box layouts.
|Eion Wolter's layout "I hide them, you find them" is always a crowd favourite.
|Cleat County has made a few appearances now in shows around south east Queensland.
|And this gentleman's nice layout that I missed photographing the week before at the Redlands Show.
|A pair of Bumblebees taking in the breeze on the Philden Coast...
|...and a full yard by the harbour to round out the day!
