Welcome to New Zealand Rail 120, Lewis Holden's blog on modelling railways in New Zealand. I'm now modelling in 1:87 (HOn3.5). For NZR plans see the Plans page, or the NZ120 Facebook group.

Auhagen bargains

Depot tanks?
...the Middleton loco depot, Christchurch.

Surfing the internets, there's a really interesting TT gauge brand from Germany called Auhagen. Most of their models are too European to fit into a New Zealand scene, but a lot of the accessories are great - e.g. the tanks pictured above could be made to look like the fuel tanks at Middleton. Will need to save some coin...

Unpacking progresses...

Bridge out.

Slowly. I've managed to get my model stuff all together over the past week. No time to work on anything though!

Thanks Crown Relocations*
I'm currently unpacking at our new place so modeling is at a minimum (i.e. reading old Journals as I unpack the boxes). Normal transmission will resume shortly...

*Yep, our stuff was transported via KiwiRail. Tracked our container from Auckland to Wellington. Very cool.
