The layout cost $50 to build using recycled stuff and offcuts. The buildings are all made from cardboard and printed textures.
The builder, Chris, is a big fan of letting people know that model railways doesn't have to be expensive and he has built some excellent layouts in the past. This one is sort of S scale using HO track.
The best bit about it?
The nine and a half inch radius of the HO track. Brilliant! It's hidden in the big blue building.
Chris found out that the extra half inch gives him just that little bit more freedom.
I love Billabong Marina, but an extra half an inch radius could have given me a little more flexibility.
Here are some photos of Argyle Iron Works.
