HI all, 
The Australian Narrow Gauge Convention at Geelong also provided our first opportunity to get a photo of all 12 modules of the layout togetherP1240773a by oztrainz, on Flickr
At 5.2 metres (17') along the incline edge facing the camera and 7.2 metres (23'7") along the black wall.  


I'll kick off a separate thread for photos from the 2017 ANGC. These may be a few days away yet

What Jose said. I didn't realize how massive the layout is all together. Can't wait to see more pictures. Stephen

Certainly a vast change from seeing it at the 2013
NG meet. :moose::moose::moose:

Hopefully I can make it DU in 2019, then I may finally do a clinic I was asked to do this year if I made it.
Working on another set of plans and interior equipment for the clinic.

Hi Ken,
Was a shame you weren't able to wrangle another trip down under...it was a huge weekend that ran like clockwork.  No shortage of super happy modellers walking away from this convention, with big smiles and big new ideas.  If you start long distant planning for a holiday far south, I'm sure there would be interest in the photos you have to share (I saw the CD of what potentially would have been shown if you'd been able to travel down on this occasion).
Cheers,Dan Pickard

Glad I took photos when I did of the intake Tanks and wood stave piping, the majority has been replaced with steel tanks and plastic pipe. Did do up a set of drawing's at the time for the tanks and piping . Clearing my drafting table so I can start on a set of plans for the power plant itself.
Planning to get up to the plant again in early May, so will likely take another 100 or so photos of the equipment and interior, along with YET! more notes. all ways seem to miss things I should have logged in my binder.

That is excellent! I just wish that I could get "down under" to see it for real! A great work of art, you all are to be congratulated.

Hi all,
it's been a while, so it's time to give this thread a poke again to see what falls out. 


Over the weekend I found that one of the convention attendees managed to catch the incline part of the layout in action during testing on Good Friday. At the time the incline ropes had not been installed and the tipple building was down on the standard gauge tracks near the Screens building so we could watch the "tipper-outer" in action.  Here's the video -
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaqsiF96m40

There needs to be 3 loaded skips on the tipple deck before anything happens at the bottom end. The arriving 4th skip, nudges the 3 parked skips forward and triggers the tip cycle. 


I'm not sure if we've covered the design and operation of the tipper-outer on here previously. If not, then this might be a good place to cover it? Or we go back to where we were at the top of Page 15 and go back to building the rest of the layout?


Your call on this. I can go either way, or perhaps even to somewhere different in the Corrimal saga??
