Hey all!

Some of you guys may remember seeing a video of Blocksford 2009:



Blocksford is my LEGO layout. It is exhibited at the Bombala show, a small country show a few hours drive away and at its main expo, Canberra Model Railway Expo. Both of these are at the end of March, so I have one and a half months to complete it for the 2010 displays.
This thread could easily be placed in the town forum, but I figured as it is mainly a train layout, I'd post it here.

Anyway, below are a few pictures of what it is so far:

Nice one Captain looking good. The brick street with the classic sets is a nice touch. Still a bit to go I would imagine I look forward to seeing it in a month or so.

Nice layout Cap'n Z.  Do you usually use Track Designer before building a layout?  
I love your brick built roads. :wub:

I hope you're haveing a lot of fun answering all the normal questions;
How long did it take you, how many bricks, can I have a go .... :-)

I always consider a train show a sucess if I didn't kill any kids.

I have updated the first post with photos from Blocksford 2010, video coming in a few weeks time.

The expos were a big success, although I was surprised that the most common question this year was "Where's Spongebob?". And the appauled look on people's faces when I told them I didn't own a Spongebob was priceless! :tongue:

I hope you enjoy the pics. :classic:
