Kato models as a training aid.


Recommended Posts

I spent the day at our staff college at Petersham doing first aid refresher training. Tucked away at the back of the auditorium was a pair of these layouts, which I assume are some kind of training aid. But look closely at the maker of the power supply, switchgear and loco! 😂

Maybe it’s to relax the students after a hard day of cpr on the rubber dummies! Great how they built it on the swivel base to store it. Looks in very nice shape.

Neat find mark!  What are those devices to the left of the turnout controls in the top photo?


I know here in LA some of the Amtrak guys were trying to start a model train club in the old crew room at the LA roundhouse.  Not sure if they're still around, its been a few years.

I asked my friend James who I believe is a conductor in the Sydney area, he said that layout is for signaler training.  I guess to familiarize non-train people with how a railway works before doing more in-depth training.  He did his training there when he started out.
