That time of the year again, and a milestone

The last twelve months have been somewhat tumultuous to say the least, with the relocation of the family and the layout. Yet here we are staring down another Christmas, so as per usual, here is this years Christmas card.

There is also another celebration with Victoria Street, this one in cricket parlance, one would raise their helmet and bat towards the sheds to honour the achievement. Here, I just sampled a beer and pointed to the (somewhat surprised) bride that there must be a fair few similar like minded modellers who actually look at the blog. 

Yes, there have been an odd 100,000 plus 'fares collected' on Victoria street. 

On this humble occasion, I again thank all of those who read the blog and encourage those others to post all about their trials and tribulations of their layout, along with their stories and the 'fun' of modelling.

"Little did Edna know that she was the surprise lucky punter that was the 100K fare on Victoria Street, yet she still insisted to pay her fare with five cent pieces."

All the best for the season with the usual warnings about excess and remember it's all about creating great memories for the kids. 

Merry Christmas from under a somewhat busy set of cross suburban wires. 



  1. Thanks for the annual card Glenn. Wishing you and your family all the very best for Christmas. Congratulations on your milestone, and I will raise a glass to you as well.

  2. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours! Congrats on 100k 'fares' ! I enjoy reading your posts, and I'm looking forward to seeing more in the coming year.

  3. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you and your family. I have been very inspired of your great blog and have started building my own model tramways, Wombat Creek Tramways. It is still very modest but I'll keep modelling!

  4. Sorry. My previous comment came up with no name! I'm Claus Ellef
