Well my talks at the MRNSW went very well. At first I was nervous, which was expected, and then after 3 talks on the day, I was exhausted.

I was then asked to present a talk at Liverpool Genealogical Society which was done. And now I have been asked to do another talk at the City of Liverpool and District Historical Society. I think I should charge a fee and become a full-time speaker.

Anyway, I have some great news. My local council has approved the construction of my shed at my property in the Picton/Thirlmere area.

I intend to build a shed 25m x 10m of which the majority of the room will be devoted to a model of Liverpool. It will be set in the years 1955-early 1957; as in early 1957 the Challenge Woollen Mills siding were removed from the railway system. It will be based on the track plan of 1943.

I will keep you posted on developments.

Modelling the Railways of NSW (MRNSW)

On 16th May 2015, I will be hosting a talk on the history of Liverpool Railway Station, at the MRNSW at Loftus TAFE . It will go for approx 1 hr. It will cover topics like the station buildings, the goods shed, ticket office, electrification, accidents, and the Moorebank/Anzac Rifle Range Line.

If you have registered at their website,, to attend the Convention and nominated my talk as one of your classes, I look forward to seeing you there.
