Clear polycarbonate from Allplastics Engineering was one of the materials used to create a model railway station by model train enthusiasts in Sydney. A Model Train Station Exhibition, organised at a beautiful residence in Sydney’s North Shore, was attended by Vic Kalloghlian, Managing Director of Allplastics Engineering.
Simon Ford is part of a model train enthusiasts club that meets every month with an exquisite range of model trains run on tracks in various venues and members’ backyards.
One of the exhibits was a railway station built by Craig Guerin of Creative Iron in Darwin. Described as a ‘genius welder of steel’, Craig built the station to visually reflect a combination of ‘Waterloo’, ‘Crystal Palace’ and ‘Steam Punk’ styles. The metal components were powder coated internally in rust red and outside in metal silver.
Allplastics supplied a flexible, unbreakable polycarbonate spool, which covered the roof of the station, curving over the station and the sides of the trains. This allowed observers to see the trains moving in and out of the station while offering protection from the wind and rain.
Allplastics also supplied fluoro red acrylic rods for the illuminated roof of the station, adding a colourful edge to the model train display especially at night.
Simon Ford thanked the Allplastics team on behalf of the model train enthusiasts club for contributing to the incredible outcomes.
