The trains on time

IF you go down to the Norm Jordan Pavilion today, or tomorrow, you are in for a train surprise.

One whole side of the Pavilion has been taken over by the Coffs Harbour Railway Modellers, which has set up a massive model railway as part of the 2010 Coffs Harbour Show.

The 12 metre by 6.3 metre model railway has not only locomotives, goods and passenger vans, but a whole miniature landscape.

The 1.87 scale 60 Class Garrett locomotives, pulling dozens of carriages, rattle over bridges and through forests, town, wharves and factories, blowing their whistles, ringing their bells, sounding just like their full-scale cousins as they rumble and shunt through their scale-model world.
