Sounds like something that could eventually expanded to many more (and wider) segments--if you have the room.
There is something to be said for building in "modules" as one can be finished, one in the process of getting scenery and the third with just the track and landforms going down. Especially good idea, is incorporating an inglenook into the earliest section--so that when work gets to be a bore, you can have some meaningful operation.
I have done a little on line "looking" at NZ, and the scenery is spectacular. If it were not for the choice of North island (getting fried by a volcano) or South island (having brain even more rattled by the shaking) sounds like a great place to live.
It is very common on model railroad forums for some one to post that they bought a handful of strip wood, and have 10 replies "can't wait to see how this turns out". Fortunately, that doesn't happen here very much--but I have to say that your proposed project interests me a great deal. I look forward to more posts, and photos, as you progress.
Fix it again, Mr Gates--it still works!"
