Leyland brothers layout near Karuha, NSW

 
  edison Chief Commissioner

Stayed with school kids some 15 years ago on an excursion at the accommodation behind "Ayer's Rock" on the Pacific Hwy near Karuha, next to Port Stevens. There were some sound stage film studios, and an extensive miniature railway layout, about 15 inch gauge.
Does this still exist, if not, what happened to it, and what was the rolling-stock and motive power?

If the line is 610mm the owner will face mountains of regulation,  work and $$$ to get it open again.
For a 2nd tier commercial tourist operator, it would be hard to justify the investment for a minimal return.
The line most likely will stay shut and left to rot or sold off.
