The layout will centre around the railway station and surrounding yard of Gunnedah, which is located on the Mungindi Line, 475.8km North of Sydney
The main types of rail traffic through Gunnedah in that era were Wheat, Coal and Livestock. Gunnedah has a large wheat silo located within the yard with its own siding. There are also various mills, livestock and oil sidings on the outskirts of Gunnedah which will make for an interesting track plan and eventually opperation.
The layout will opperate on DCC, use Peco Code 75 Rail, and all points (turnouts) are being hand laid. Whist it will be a home layout, I will use a style of modular construction to allow for easy transportation if need be.
The long term goal with the layout is to not only model Gunnedah itself, but also some of the more interesting locations along the Mungingi line, hence the title Gunnedah "and Beyond".
I'll do my best to get some photos up over the next few weeks of progress so far, so check back from time to time.
