A Visitor to Lambing Flat...

While it has been a while since my last post, I haven't been completely idle. Hopefully I will 'catch up' with events in due course, but in the meantime, here are a couple of photos of a recent visitor to Lambing Flat.

My good mate, Chris Sim, has been busy over the last couple of years, working on models of the NSWGR's fastest (allegedly ;) railmotor, CHP38, known as 'Creamy Kate', and a 500 class trailer, which 'Kate' often hauled at times of excess patronage.
Here, Chris's completed model rests in the platform. While Chris had modified the model a little, he has kept it in the post-1972 condition that the SJM kit portrays. I was quite impressed with the way he has painted the two vehicles (authentically) in different shades of Indian red. The 1970s version of Indian red was a darker, bluer shade than the colour used in the 1950s/'60s, especially when newly applied.

Here she is approaching Lambing Flat from the Cowra direction, passing over the bridge over Back Creek on the new section I have been working on over the last couple of months. More on this new section (the first new section of scenery on LF for about 20 years!) in future posts.
