On our way to Brendan's D&H

Saturday morning
    9.45am and we were underway heading to Sunbury about an hour and a quarters drive from my home to visit the D&H RR which was having its last run before being torn down ready for a house move for Brendan and his family.
   I had arranged with John the owner of the AT&SF Boise City sub to drop in on our way and so arrived at about 10.00am. (there where rumors that this RR is going as well so there are a lot of concerned operators in our group at the moment).
  As we did not have too long to stay here are just a few pics.

     Then it was time to depart and head to Sunbury about 45 klm away to meet up with the rest of the crew at Macca's as we were all heading to Brendans planning to arrive just after lunch.
    A few quick pics of the RR then down to some operating.
This is a big layout and it will be sad to see it go after such a short time in existence

Breaking news

    As we were taking a break in the arvo, the news broke that Chris a good mate and Brendan had hatched a plan so Chris could purchase the D&H and move it to his new train room. It will become a BN RR and the good news is that it will only be 2 kilometers away. Now we will have two in the same area how cool.
    To make the announcement Brendan and Chris had set up two pass trains without any of us picking it up and here they are.



and a couple of very happy guys.

Great news lads.

     Gordon and I left about 4.00pm headed home and then out to dinner with Gordon and my wife Helen. We got back here at about 7.00pm and then Gordon was able to download over 700 plus images of layouts and UP steam stuff off his laptop so I can share it with the guys.
     Unfortunately I was not able to be around Sunday so John C was to be Gordon's chauffeur for the day and that was planned to be another long day.

Thats it for this post.
Rod.
