Beautifully photographed Aaron. Agree with the shot from the truck, very atmospheric.

Life is so easy when I run my trains. :thumbright:

I can only echo what others have already said - it's a miniature masterpiece. Well worth the extra effort!

Lovely end result Aaron - a very attractive little cameo there. Just need a few locals lounging around!

Never heard of the 6pm swill, but then I live under a rock. It'd make an interesting subtle detail to include. I'm modelling 1920s-70s, when did QLD abandon that?
Looks like it was actually an 8 o'clock swill in Qld, which was abandoned in 1941, much earlier than Vic and SA....

In the 1970's Queensland had moved onto "Sessions" 10am - 10 pm Mon to Sat
On Sundays times were11am-1pm & 5pm-7pm to appease the church goers and the government.
