Hi of all you,

After having built an open air shed, I think about building new exhibition layout.

The trackplan



Some facts about Koonunga Junction

Size : 1m35 X 0m45 + fiddle yard (0m45 X 0m45)
Scale : Oe / On30
Track : handlaid track (code 83)
Control : DCC
Where : Island somewhere in Tasmania Sea (perhaps Black Treatle Island!!!)
When : During the sixties

Currently, the baseboard is done.



To be continued ...

All the best for New Year, Fabrice
Have a G'day

Hi Fabrice. Nice track plan and good carpentry. If this module features the same quality as your (late?) Josephtown, it will be a nice layout.

Fabrice, I always enjoy seeing your modeling. I look forward to following along as you make progress on this new project.

As you think, so will you be.

This looks like an interesting project, Fabrice. I notice you are using cables to support your staging area. Would you please give us more information on how you have it attached to the layout.

George,
It has just attached to the layout with eye bolts. I used too turnbuckle for tightening cables.

Nice to see your new exhibition layout is underway. I've always been interested in how these small exhibition layouts are built and operated and this thread should be a treat.

Hi Fabrice. This looks like a great little project. I think the shadow box is a great way to go. Especially for portability.

Hello Fabrice,

what program did you use to draw the trackplan ?
I have mine ready, but a photo makes it difficult
to get the correct views.

Jacq,
I use XtrkCad (cf. http://www.sillub.com) to draw trackplan and import the file to Adobe Illustrator to finalize drawing.

Hi all of you,

During the handlaiding track, I've updated trackplan.



I added one siding track to increase possibilities and turned the traverser into a second sector plate.



I've created a plausible economic situation : Yarra Island, somewhere at South East Australia.



I've worked too on creating a control panel.



Currently, I've wiring the layout and I've building the fiddle yard.



Comments welcome !!!

Have a G'day, Fabrice

The track is nicely laid, Fabrice. And the second sector plate will add some operating interest.
