John Eassie TRAX and Austrains founder passes away

 G'day All

It is with great sadness to inform the Australian modelling public of the passing of John Eassie.

John was the power house behind model brands such as TRAX and Austrains. John almost single handedly changed the Australian railway modelling scene by providing mass produced robust models.

While there have been plenty of followers, John was the barn stormer.

The Australian modelling public will always be in debt to him for this.
