As usual it was the mild panic in where was my camera or phone? I found the camera and then went to another room adjoining the side gate to take a photo. Well I know I saw two of them but could only find one of them in the garden.

I really reckon I should have started up a zoo in the backyard. Over time I have seen the goannas, a few snakes, an echidna and the scrub turkeys have taken a liking to the bush/garden and have fun scattering the mulch everywhere. We also have about five kookaburras and many king parrots drop in a few times a day for their feeding. The big trouble is that they are all not together at the one time otherwise I could have got the kindy kids at the school opposite to come over and have a look. Can you pat a goanna?
Well that is the animal side of things over and yes I have still been working on the railroad. I have been concentrating on getting a large section of the layout finished. There were many pockets where I had made a start but not finished one big area.
One of the jobs was to revisit the trestle area. On my previous HO layout the main focus point was down the back corner where I called it the gully area. There were three tracks crossing the gullt at different levels and was probably the most scenic area completed. Eventually the tracks will be run through this area and will need a complete scenic update.
