Space Now Taken

Space at Glenburn seems popular, some genuine Australian late 1920's-mid 1930's adverts have quickly filled the gap. The signal cable troughing has also been installed. Am making the most of this view now as this will be facing the rear of the layout!

Space for Rent

Replicating one of the billboards that used to be in situ at Auburn station, just need some adds, watch this space...

Hmmm - May have over-reduced the size of this picture!

Foundations for Glenferrie and Auburn stations include brick arching through the elevated road. In most cases these brick works are hidden from view, buried in the ground, however at the Dn end of Glenferrie's Dn platform the arching stands proud of the embankment supporting the platform as shown here. This section has now been modelled though the ground cover may need lightening, and I will need to find some poplars!

VR Overhead Dimensions - Many Thanks Ian Weickhardt

Seeking data for modelling the overhead, Ian Weickhardt generously provided the dimensions which I've overlaid on the 1953 General Appendix diagram.

Forming the Plat

Current Glenburn task is to form up the platforms in the style of Auburn & Glenferrie - a brick base with an inverted concrete angle and concrete capping stone. Cleaner appearance is in line with the 1930's when graffiti existed, but not in this location.
