The Layout

Kaughan Landing (Great Northern)

This layout has come into existence due to a residential move and a subsequent decrease in layout space. A point to point layout with a turntable at each end, built on a 450mm wide shelf.

Layout Description

The layout is a freelance setup that has rolling stock based on the Great Northern and also uses location names from all over the system but are nowhere geographically related.

The layout is 5m x 4m in an L shape with a turntable at either end and the section containing Kaughan Landing is somewhere near the centre.

There are industries that support each other such as stockyards, slaughterhouse, iceing dock, small mine, brewery, and some smaller suppliers and customers. The majority of structures on the layout are scratch built and as the area exists in an unsignalled area so trains run as needed but hoping in the future to use car cards.
