Gary Danson from the village has a fascinating train hobby! He has a large collection of model trains that he has accumulated over the years and was happy to show off a few of his favourites.
Since he was 3 years old, Gary has been ‘train mad’. He can remember that he used to run up and down the train platforms just to get a closer look at these fantastic pieces of machinery. He would read as many books as he could get his hands on about trains and locomotives.
Gary was a part of the Australian Model Railway Association – Victorian Branch located in Glen Iris where he was President for 14 years. The association was founded in 1953.
The association has detailed model replica trains in action that run through landmarks and towns which they once travelled through. Plus there’s exhibitions and displays to enjoy. For more information, go to: http://www.amravic.com.au
