It has been several days since the Modelling the Railways of NSW 35th Convention, where I had the opportunity to co-present (read, evangelise) about the Coonamble branch. If you were at the Convention and attended one of my sessions, thank you for not throwing anything at me, including hard questions. I frankly had a ball; listening to myself speak has always been one of my favourite past-times. But now life will return to normal, which means blogging!
One of the drawbacks of presenting (perhaps the only drawback) is the reduced opportunity you have to attend other sessions. I only got to one other session and it was on a subject which perplexes me to this day - signalling. It was a beaut session and I can now confidently say that the signal in the photo below is a short one.
