History and use
This model is part of the T-House model rail collection which is of national and international significance due to the size, quality and scope of the collection

The collection, assembled over 30 years from the 1970s to the 1990s, holds 10,000+ models of locomotives, carriages and wagons. The collection is in excellent – often mint – condition.

The collection was donated through the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program by Shin Investments Pty Limited in memory of Mr Marsden “Mick” Williams (1916-2013), founder of the Allied Group of Companies and a significant contributor to the industry and economy of the Illawarra region of Australia since the 1940s.

Mr Williams was born, raised and spent his life in the Wollongong area, and was a business man who was renowned for philanthropy. He was an intensely private man, who was nevertheless well connected across the Australian business world. His 40 year fascination for model railways reflected his own interest in precision engineering, and his financial success allowed him to pursue his interest to a remarkable extent.
