Today I went over to Mount Maunganui to see the annual model railway exhibition held at the college. Curiously there were no American layouts this time around, but only New Zealand or UK layouts. However, there was an exception in the form of a German N scale layout. Highlights at the exhibition included a green Hornby Ruston 48DS and the Clockwork Orange DX.
Also seen before the model exhibition were two KiwiRail freight trains on The Strand. It should go without saying at this point that both trains were hauled by DL’s.
