The new system will allow the trains to have controllable lights, sound effects and realistic operation via individual computer chips in each locomotive. This will provide the community with the realistic sights and sounds of steam and diesel locomotives.

Graeme Ralph, club treasurer said, “the new layout is modular in design, allowing transport in the club’s newly constructed trailer, and will be used as an educational tool for new members. The Club regularly visits community events so the new layout will provide these community events with a realistic looking and sounding model railway that encourages people of all ages to get involved in the hobby.

The 6 layout modules have been constructed with track, electrical power wiring and the relevant Digital Command and Control system (DCC)  components installed. The module has been ‘test run’ by members and is working perfectly. The layout still requires rural landscape scenery and the various town structures to be installed. These will be put in place over the next coming months.

The new layout will require about $5,000 in total construction costs, however the Veolia Mulwaree Trust Grant has been a significant contribution to the funding needed for the layout.”

Veolia Mulwaree Trust is very proud to have supported this very worthwhile project and wishes everyone associated with the Milton Ulladulla Model Railway Club years of success.
