The 3 days was professionally run. Most importantly it was fun. Thank you to the entire group for putting up with my hassles and making me feel welcome.

Section cars are an ideal vehicle for travelling the countryside, appreciating Queensland’s heritage & marveling at things built by pick & shovel.
