This layout was originally only intended to be a shelf layout to showcase the locos and to be able to show them off in layout surroundings rather than a plain shelf in a showcase. Eventually if you have a showcase the number of locos soon surpasses the available shelf space.
The design was to have loco servicing to suit both steam and diesel although at this stage only two NSW steam locos exist that being a Trainorama 32 class that has been weathered and sound equipped and a Eureka 60 class garratt also sound and weathered.
|The great find
|Test fit for the turntable
|Loco storage area expanded
|The turntable finally settled into the baseboard
|Turntable is connected up to the loco roads.
|All storage roads in place.
As can be seen in the above photo with the additional baseboard width now twelve roads for loco storage have been provided. The two roads that run straight across the turntable will be utilised for the 60 class garratt storage as the loco is too long for the turntable but all other locos can fit and will be able to use and of the other roads. Some roads that are longer will be able to hold up to two locos.
