BEYOND 2000 is an "N" scale modular layout measuring 3.6 m X 800 mm. We have used many forms of lighting to portray a night scene on the Sydney Suburban rail network.
It features a spectacular lighting effect of Sydney Harbour and the CBD using fibre optics with an approaching electrical storm, street lighting and extensive use of ultra violet light (black light) and fluorescent materials.
Another feature is Stadium Australia with a State of Origin Football match in progress, Tangara’s travelling from Central to Olympic Park Station and a Fireworks display over the Staduim. All manner of trains may be seen from a futuristic "SPEEDRAIL VFT" taking passengers to Canberra, Diesel hauled Superfreighters, XPT's, Tangara's and the occasional Vintage Train operating special excursion runs out of the "Millennium Railway Museum"
This layout has been re-built to portray Sydney by night. To see the changes go to the LAYOUT ’CITY LIGHTS’ page.
