I am selling my fully operational Model railway layout with display cabinet in N scale. Below is a full description, if you have any further questions, my contact details are below.
You'll find more pictures at the end of this message.[/CENTER]
This layout was built to the highest standards. Even on model railway shows you don't often see this level of quality finish.
The layout comes with a display cabinet that consists of 18 individual tracks in transparent cases that can be taken out of the cabinet and connected to the layout, so that you can easily take trains from the cabinet and run them on the layout.
The layout can be demonstrated before you buy, everything works - there is nothing left to be done and nothing left to buy! See details below of what is included.General description of the layout
At ground level there is a double track main line and a station with 4 tracks. Next to the station there is a small industrial area with some sidings, a sawmill and a goods shed. From the station, a single track side branch goes to the highest part of the layout (about 300mm above ground level) via a helix and 2 bridges. The side branch ends in another industrial area with a factory, a stone quarry, a few sidings and a return loop.
The main line goes off into a tunnel on the right to a fiddle yard with 4 storage tracks of 1.2 to 1.5m long. On the left side of the layout the main line goes into a tunnel and appears again on a higher level on the right where the main line runs behind the town to a tunnel on the left side where there is another fiddle yard with 4 storage tracks of 1.2 to 1.5m long and a return loop.
At the front of the layout there is a bracket where you can fit one of the display cabinet cases, to put extra trains on the layout.
The combination of the 2 fiddle yards and the display cabinet cases allows you to run varied traffic. You can have 15 trains simultaneously on the track while only running 2-5 at the same time.Layout construction
The layout is 3.45 x 1.9 metres in size and consists of 4 modules which can be pulled apart for transport. The modules have removable legs and all electronics is done via connectors so no soldering/cutting is necessary when (dis)assembling.Track
All visible track is Peco code 55 and invisible track (in tunnels & fiddle yard) is Peco code 55. In total there is about 80m of track, with 38 points and 1 double slip.
There are 2 fiddle yards, one with 4 extra tracks and one with 6. Because the fiddle yard cannot be seen from the front of the layout, the control panel has LEDs that indicate whether there is a train on the fiddle yard track.Control
The track is currently operated with a DCC command station, but it is possible to convert the layout to DC if you so desire. The layout has 3 reversing loops and each of them is fitted with an electronic reverse loop module.
All points are driven by Peco point motors (invisably mounted under the board) and DCC decoders. In total there are 11 DCC decoders mounted under the board. These decoders are controlled through a switch board mounted at the front of the track. The points DCC is separate from the track DCC, so you could even operate the trains in DC and still use the DCC points.Scenery
The scenery is of very light construction, so the track is easy to transport. The following materials were used for scenery construction: plywood, styrofoam, flyscreen, tile adhesive and plaster. No paper-mache on this layout!
The buildings in the town and industrial area in the front are all high quality, very detailed kits and the factory buildings in the background have been made from Metcalfe kits.
All buildings have been weathered.What is included?
The entire layout, including track, point motors, wiring and scenery.
Optionally the following may be included:
Control panel with DCC interface (encoder) and 11 DCC decoders for all points, this will work even if you want to run DC trains.
3 reverse loop modules (if you are going to run DCC trains).
Roco Multimaus DCC command station with 2 handsets (cabs), manuals and power supply (If you are going to run DCC trains and you don' t have a command station yet)
Rolling stock: I have several DCC Locomotives, carriages, and freight wagons you can choose from.
Only if you include all of the above, you will have a fully operational layout. If you choose not to include some or all of it, you may need to do a bit of work and/or buy some extra components before you can run trains.Transport
The layout is currently installed in Parkdale, Victoria and can be demonstrated before disassembly.
The layout consists of 4 modules for easy transport, the module sizes are:
1.8 x 0.6 m
1.8 x 0.7 m
1.9 x 0.75 m
1.4 x 0.9 m
This will easily fit in a small truck, or even in a large van. I will help disassemble and load, and if you are not too far away and/or if you pay (travel) expenses, I will gladly help to install the layout on site.Price
The price will depend on what you would like to include in the buy. If you are genuinely interested and appreciate the cost and work that goes into a layout like this I am sure we can come to an agreement.
Please contact me if you are interested in buying the layout, either by phone: 0404 429 865 or email: firstname.lastname@example.orgFinally
You may wonder why I am selling this layout. The reason is simple, for me the hobby is building a layout. Now that the layout is finished I would like to start working on a new one. I only have space for 1 layout at a time, so the time has come for this one to move on unfortunately...
