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!

Layout Update - Painting

After a bit of a break over summer, I have got back into running some trains and trying to get the layout into a decent look with minimal effort, in preparation for a few running days around Easter.

The two main improvements have been the installation of the island divider and subsequent painting of the sky blue right around the layout, and the second aspect has been the installation of a fascia and the subsequent painting of that into a black finish (need a little bit more paint to complete!).  

The overall layout needs a good clean up as it has become the home to tools and materials of late.

I'm keen to add a few more sidings at Nathans Point plus another set of cross overs, but will see how operations go to start with.  

Also need to install a few Hex Frog Juicers in the main yard and some PSX circuit breakers as the next project.
