Happily married, born and raised in Auckland NZ. In my younger days my school holidays were spent with my grandparents who lived near the Otahuhu NZR Workshops and railway facilities. Over the years a passion for the NZR scene grew thou sadly as I got older the NZR steam era surpassed to the diesel era and much of the NZR network was pulled up, stations demolished and then sold off by the then Government .I started this WEB Site due to the immense interest in the hobby, the fine scale work that I have done from kits and the creations from scratchbuilds. All this to bring how NZR was like in the early 60's to life in miniture form.
I hope you find my site interesting and able to gain something from it for your own hobby. I have created some links to areas that have helped me along the build,
Please feel free to Contact me for any for modeling queries, photos viewed on this site, or if in NZ and traveling through the Wairarapa and wish to view the layout.
