I first visited Richards On30 layout last year as part of the NMRA Aust Convetion layout tours, and was by blown away by the level of detail and visual overload. Certainly one of the finest and most detailed layouts you'd ever see. And all in 4' x 10'. I finally had some time this week for another visit and a chance to take some photo's without a crowd. Hope you enjoy.














More to come

I love this layout, which was featured twice in Narrow Gauge Downunder. It is very inspiring. BTW, one of the structures on my Sn3 layout is directly inspired by a small building on Richard's layout.

Here's some more pics. They're a mix of some I took last year, and others this week. The layout was already finished, but since last year Richard has moved one building and replaced three others. I will note these.

From last year.






New building now in place.








Plenty more to come.

Southpier,I think the turnouts are just controlled with rods. The plan is just a loop with various spurs/sidings all located at the front.
Andy, yes the layout has been in two issues of NGDU as well as MRH online magazine. Here's a link to it. http://model-railroad-hobbyist.com/magazine/mrh-2010-JanFeb/stoney_creek
Also Richard has a diorama article in the current issue of NGDU.







Embers are done with red paint, which seem to glow. Very realistic.


There's even a padlock on the door
