Its come to my notice that we have not had a trackplan from the files for a while. just by coincidence while looking for something else the other day, I came across something that's a wee bit out of left field, and quite a departure from our normal fair. The location is the Petone esplanade where in the old days there was the Gear meat works (as well as Odlins timber, but that's another story). Now I just thought that it would be a standard set up with a passing loop on the seafront and a selection of sidings running off into the works. I was completely wrong.
Looking at the bottom right of the plan reveals a multitude of tracks running at a variety of interesting angles. There is a small loco shed out on the roadside fence as well. The stock yards which I could not initially find (I did have the size increased) were at the top left, and were shunted off the line running into Wellington.
I'm quite glad I found this, buried as it was in a pile of scans etc. With a small diesel shunter it might make quite a neat 'non-standard' model for those who are not overly keen on modeling NZR prototypes, but want something different.
