Waverley Model Railway Club

I mentioned earlier it was a long weekend, right?

It was the Queen's Birthday holiday on Monday, so we went to Brandon Park to see this:





Fascinating, all in all, and I casually mentioned that these elderly gentlemen must have such a passion for this hobby. And what did Wilkin reply? Something like waste of time and money. So, what else can I say? End of discussion lor, right? Haha! That was funny, a two sentence discussion. Can enter Guinness Book of Record or not?

Aidan was all the while very quiet, surprisingly, and I can see that he was really concentrating on those mini trains chugging along the trails. There are even invisible trail lines for the buses. Those people really did a great job. There was even a train model maker there to show us his skills.

At the end of the visit, who can miss the king of all children's train, Thomas?
