This website is devoted to the railway at Minnipa, on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula, and the author's model railway which is intended as a historically-correct representation of Minnipa in the 1960s. Extensive details of the prototype railways on Eyre Peninsula can be found at the sister website Peninsula Pioneer.
The Modelling the Railways of South Australia Convention is held in Adelaide each September, and is an excellent forum for those interested in the old South Australian Railways, the Commonwealth Railways, and their successor operators. The one-day event includes presentations in both prototype and modelling streams, and high quality session papers and other notes are distributed to all attendees. These papers have developed into an invaluable resource for modellers and historians alike.
The next Convention will be held on Saturday 2 September 2017. For further information, see the Convention website.
