 Dunedin Model Train Show 2013 - New Zealand

2011 Dunedin Model Train Show - Downstairs Layouts

Details about the layouts and traders you will see at the 2010 show can be found below here...

Layout - ARAUATU. A New Zealand Sn 3 ½ scale layout.

The name ARAUATU comes from what occurred during the construction of the layout - A Row or Two, which indicates how some decisions were made.

It is a highly detailed Sn 3.5 model that includes Caversham station, with excellent Southern rural and urban scenery.

 Stamping Ground 2008 Layout

The image above shows the 2008 layout, but this labour of love has resulted in a large extension since that show and now features many more animations.

Layout - Butterwick Branch


In the centre of the room is a small OO gauge layout called Butterwick Branch, which is based upon English rural and industrial line.

Nearby is another bar where CHRISTCHURCH MODEL SUPPLIES will be displaying a large amount of modelling items for sale.

BRITANNIA MODELS are a little further round to your left in another alcove also featuring a large amount of modelling items for sale.

Opposite the BUTTERWICK BRANCH there is a bar that occupies the SECOND HAND STAND. This is where you can bring in any unwanted model items for sale. A 10% levy is the cost to you on a successful sale.

Layout - N Central


At the southern end of the room, this N gauge layout features a quarry, small station, forest and a wharf

That completes a tour of the lower floor, but don’t go away just yet.
