Regional Committee Member Australasian RegionI have been interested in model trains since the early fifty's but it was many years later before I had either time or space to become seriously involved in the hobby.
I started building a layout in the eighty's and was able to acquire rolling stock to run in HO scale and NSW prototype. In 1998 we moved from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast and it was another couple of years before rebuilding of a layout commenced.
At this time my current interest is in modelling Cane Railways using HO e scale.
It was at that time I joined the Caloundra & District Model Rail Club and became involved with their display layout at their Sale Days and became President of the Club a few years later. I still hold that position.
My purpose in joining the NMRA-AR Committee was to provide Queensland with a voice at the Regionl level and to try and achieve better involvement and communication for Division 1 members together with all members along the way.
