Nathan's Point

A modern-era proto-freelance H0 scale layout with a NSW terminal and regional theme.

The layout is a point-to-point design with the open staging yard being the main yard (Jonestown) of the layout and comprising of a basic loco facility, intermodal terminal, grain receival terminal and a passenger station.

From the yard, the mainline (or in this case the branchline) operates through a grain loading town (Heidiville) and then continues onto the terminus town (Nathans Point) which is also a grain town and includes a regional intermodal terminal, passenger station, and small steel distribution centre.

There is no hidden staging, with all trains operating with an on-layout purpose.

Follow along as the layout finally gets closer to reality during 2018 and 2019!

Starting on Jonestown Yard

Having worked the track aruund Jonestown Junction last weekend, I made a strong start on Jonestown mainline, to the terminus station, plus started the planning for the main yard.

The main and loop tracks are laid, and wiring will happen over the next few days, and then onto the yard.

The yard ladder is difficult as I am trying to get good length sidings, but basically run out of room at the far end of the photo, where the trains all converge and run to a head shunt which needs to be about 1m long.

I'll get the main and loop operational, plus install the Tortoises and do the control panel, and then start planning out the yard arrangement.
