This blog is a summary of the progress of the building of an N scale layout representing Strathalbyn station and yards in South Australia. The era being modelled is the 1960s. The Aus-moN free form modular system was chosen as the basis for construction. Besides operational use, the layout is also suitable for display. As Strathalbyn station is still in use today by tourist trains of SteamRanger, a swap era may be considered to add variety. (by the Southern N Scale Modellers informal group)
The Strathalbyn Racing Club racecourse is about 4km to the South of the town centre.Design has begun on the module which will include the step-down platform at the rear of the racecourse buildings.The step-down platform is shown by the rectangular box next to the railway line.
The module is shown below connected at the left of the other modules.
