Well the house renovations are 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....
