Adelaide exhibition report 2015

It is that time of the year again, with the Adelaide Model Railway Exhibition running over the long weekend. Attended on the the Saturday, and for the first time, had to park some distance away. Sign of a good attendance crowd.
Unlike interstate, the only release was Orient Express's D vans, which had actually arrived around a week ago; but more important, was Fred was showing the first engineering samples of the Centenary cars (if you asked). These look really good.
Seem to be a few more traders, and a bit of a lack of layouts, but they were generally good.

Trainworld/Railmotor had their SCT sample on display. (Which is better? I have a quote, 'it is like choosing between a Lima 930 or a Trainorama 930').
Mt Joseph N scale. (Sorry John)
I have included a photo of St Hugo, as it shows excellent colour grading from the layout scenery to the back scene.

  2. The comment was made by Brian himself, when a friend asked whether to buy an Auscision version or the Trainworld/Railmotor unit!
