Little Stoke Layout at the Big Model Train Show in Christchurch October 2012

I started a new layout when I returned from the 2010-11 The Big Model Train Show in Christchurch 8th-9th October. The Show has been posponed from 3rd-4th October 2010 and again in March 2011 due to the earthquakes.

I purchased 11 locos and 10 carriages along with about 40 wagons from TradeMe ( New Zealand's number one on-line trading site) and UK e-bay and will build the new layout that will fit in the back of my station wagon. At this stage the plan is to adapt the two level plan on the "The Goods Yard" website and have two boards 1m x .8m and be an annalogue operation.
