Introduction

Welcome to Andrew's main south line. A mix of railway modelling from South Australia, Victoria, and occasionally, across the Tasman in New Zealand and the Midland Line.
This modelling project began many years ago, with a decision to model the South Australian Tailem Bend station, but has since changed to the Victorian town of Horsham. Why? Sadly rail operations in South Australia have steadily declined over the years. The once active railway town of Tailem Bend is no more than a resting place for banker locos required for the Adelaide Hills haul.
Horsham, like many larger Victorian centres still has rail activity, with the freight centre still in use by Wimmera Container Line. Dimboola was considered, as this has a major grain terminal, but of less interest.
