Let's add MORE

OK, so it seems that we are either working on the club room layout or on the exhibition layout at any one time and not both. So I will also use this very same blog to keep you all updated on the exhibition layout as well - hey, it is N scale after all.

So a bit of history I suppose won't go astray. The layout has always been based on the Australian version of the N-TRAK standards. As usual with modular layouts, it changes from time to time.

Originally about 3-4 years back it had a definite Japanese flavour to it, but just over 2 years ago we built 3 new front modules to change it a bit. It now has a canyon and country type town and such and has a more generic flavour with the canyon being sort of Canadian like.

It was all built to go into the back of our trailer, which had the following dimensions in height etc and the ability to take the 1.8 metre long modules.


So the overall layout sets out like this.


The over layout is now 8.4 metres long and 1.8 metres wide.

So lets get to right now and what shee looks like today. I took just over 800 photos today of it. There were only really 25 photos, but I was doing a lot of micro focusing. This is so I was then able to process the photos through a piece of software called Helicon Focus and come up with photos that are in focus all over.

So here are photos of modules 2, 3, 4 and 5 from today, oh and modules 10. Here is the cricket pitch:






Here is some of the engine facility on module 5:





And here are some of the three main modules along the front - modules 2, 3 and 4.

















So that is what we'll be showing this year on the show circuit  First show being that held by AMRA in Brisbane on the 4th and 5th of May out at Doomben in Brisbane.
