Well the house renovations are complete....so back to the layout.
I must admit that the reno took a lot longer to complete than anticipated, although it hardly seems like last June since my last posting on this blog. For this I must apologise.
What started out as a humble makeover... juggernauted to a full on gutting of the entire house....and i am sure most of you would know the rest...
Wives are a wonderful species arent they!!!???
Well back to the story...
Trackwork & other activities have started again in earnest & the hiatus has allowed some major decisions to be made.
The layout will feature a double track main. Locations & yard layouts will be fictitious although i will draw the components i like from the many prototype locations that interest me & incorporate them whilst maintaining a flavour found on the main south between say Goulburn & Junee.
Control of the layout will consist of an NCE DCC wireless system for loco control etc. Points will be activated by Cobalt point motors via Cobalt decoders from either a control panel or NCE handset. All locos will be fitted with Tsunami sound where possible...of course some locos purchased with onboard sound will have supplier fitted native sound systems & each will be trialled & then a decision made to either accept or modify.
So thats the broad brush layout update at this stage.
I will begin adding posts pertaining to separate layout issues & look forward to some feedback & discussion....Please....
