LAYOUT FOR SALE - DIGGERS BEND, On30
I'm putting my "Diggers Bend" On30 layout on the market. I've made a start on a new bigger exhibition/home layout, so need to make some space in the garage. This compact On30 layout was featured at the Australian Narrow Gauge Convention earlier this year in Melbourne, as well as several regional Victorian exhibitions this year. Its a freelance mining piece, with an emphasis on scenic finish (see pics).Layout dimensions - 102cm wide, 71cm high, 76 cm deep, all contained within boxed diorama style unit.
Box construction is aluminium framing with MDF outer panels.
Built in fluro lighting, and 2.1 sound system with included custom soundscape CD recording.
Currently fitted out for DCC operation with NCE system.
Also includes is;One Bachmann Gas Mechanical locomotive
, with Backwoods Miniatures dress up kit, TCS KAM4 decoder with stay alive and custom weathering finish.Six KB Scale tipper wagons
, with link & pin coupling, and custom weathering finish.
I am suggesting this locomotive and wagon set remain as part of the package, and remains running on DCC with the benefits of the "stay alive" capacitor. The track work of this layout is laid with sharp cornering as is typical of many mining operations. The "stay alive" decoder fitted to this locomotive has provided flawless continuous running at exhibitions, negotiating the tight cornering with reserve power when wheel pick up is difficult. Other locomotives may be trialled, but reliable running cannot be guaranteed.
Scenic elements included all figures, detail parts and vehicles. I didn't keep an accurate count, but there are a few hundred hours worth of scenic modelling in this small layout (around 80 hours just in building all the trees). I am essentially selling the layout as is, which also includes the aluminium folding stand and curtain if required.
I am including the NCE power supply and PCP fascia panel (these can of course be removed and install your own brand of DCC system instead).NOT INCLUDED ITEMS ARE THE NCE POWERCAB THROTTLE UNIT, OR THE CD PLAYER.
(a basic CD player or Discman required for the soundscape, or I can provide the sound file as a mp3)I am open to reasonable and genuine offers.
Pricing something like this is always difficult, and one can never expect to get return on all the hours invested into it.
Realistic offers would be most appreciated.

Layout is located in Geelong, and would suggest collection rather than delivery (I can assist with delivery within reason, ie 1 hours travel). Inspections welcome with enquiries.
