Richmond,a model Village an a Lovely Model Train exhibition

We day tripped out to Richmond today approx 20 kms out of Hobart Richmond Bridge (1823). Originally named Bigge’s Bridge, Richmond Bridge is Australia’s oldest bridge still in use. It was built by convicts The bridge is said to be haunted by several ghosts, including Grover, a cruel flagellator (he lashed people !!) It has a replica model village of Hobart dating back to the early 1800s and well worth a visit (they even sell CONVICT shirts ) We travelled toward Hobart and stopped at another Model shop displaying an electric train display based on the the Swiss Alps ( the owner was born there) took 30 yrs in the making and he is now in the process of selling ( Potential buyers?  it needs a lot of work doing !!) It was a great day for tourists an it made our travels all the more interesting !!
