Future of NZ120.org

Hi all, as you would’ve seen there hasn’t been much of an update of this website for some time, and most forum posters have moved to Facebook.

I don’t want to shut this site down as I think it has value, especially for the plans, however, it is an additional expense. I am thinking I might convert this page into a general NZR modelling forum, and put the content on to a less expensive, easier to organise platform.

Let me know your thoughts.


Hey team,
I’ve just renewed the NZ120.org hosting and address for another year. This costs $140. At the moment I’m between jobs so any donations would be greatly welcomed to help keep the website going. Donation button (via Paypal) is here:

Back online (and working!)

Hi all – sorry for the past few months, all I can say is I’ve learned a lot about WordPress, Ngix and the hosting company! We’re back in business now.

Thanks for all your messages, my apologies it took so long. Now back to actually modeling!


It seems there’s basically no way to set up registration to prevent spammers. Registration will now be 100% manual – to register on this website please e-mail me.

Registration re-opened

I’ve reopened user registration with stronger anti-spam plugins enabled… hopefully this prevents the mass of sign-ups we had from certain Eastern European states…

Chch show

At the recent Chch show Fred had his Springfield layout on display. Victor had brought along his Tollrail locos as well.
