Notes for Exhibition Guide
Eltham Model Railway Club
An HO scale Victorian-based railway, “Murranbilla” is on a busy single mainline, serving a medium-sized town in grain-growing country somewhere in South-Eastern Australia. The yard has facilities to service grain, cement livestock, and general goods, while the station serves passengers, mail and parcels.
Construction of the layout is modular, with largely hand-made track, using code 70 rail on copperclad sleepers, giving maximum flexibility in design, particularly with pointwork. Scenery is conventional model railway practice, using a combination of hand-made and commercially available products.
We will be running a variety of trains from Victoria and interstate representing many periods of Australia’s past and present.
We hope you enjoy viewing “Murranbilla”. Our friendly operators will be pleased to answer any questions.
