I've been doing some reading recently about trams in New Zealand. Not sure why, just something that has taken my fancy. Anyhoo, I came across this in 'From Rails to Rubber' pg 83 apparently showing the Parnell road bridge. Google maps is no help here for a better location.
This looks an interesting scene with an interesting mix of features. I immediately thought of doing a Y junction model with a back shunt for shunting.
On another note, its a week to Rail-x in Palmerston North. I'm slated to help with the Wellington 9mm layout, but I suspect I'll be 'floating' in the hall doing whatever, when I'm not showing the large scale guys how to run a layout properly :v)
Who else is planning to be there, apart from the usual suspects (Mr Trackgang will be there as well, possibly with his new layout?). I'm not sure if MMW is making the trip north, as I'd be rebuilding the track on the Waihao Downs layout if Kai-iwi was there.
