Kel Sherson: O-Scale Layout

Kel Sherson shares his NKP modeling efforts in New Zealand. The O modular layout scenery is fundamentally NZ based as the layout will be used by both NZ prototype modelers (in 9 Mill scale, track = 3'-6") and US prototype O scale.

Progress To Date On The O-Scale Modules

(Submitted November 16, 2008)
 

O-Scale Modules Displayed at Railex '08

(Submitted November 24, 2008)

The rock faces are from Weta Workshops, who did the 'Lord of the Rings' special effects. Richard Taylor (of several Oscars fame) who owns Weta is a G scale railroader. We may have to pay them another visit.

In the photos you'll also see several pieces of 9 Mill (O gauge track = 3'=6") NZ Railways prototype locos and rolling stock. We ran NZR for an hour and a half or so, then alternated with US prototype - have to say mainly NKP; and so on.
