The D&S being a private railway, uses locos from all over - some Op sessions, even Aust and USA locos are on the rails.

That looks very interesting Ron.

Very realistic, even the wind reaches gale force :mutley2:

I'm jealous of you having places for the trains to go from and too, rather than to and from a fiddle yard.

A bit of thought required when operating that lot Sol. How long has it taken to get to this stage?

The D&S has been on the march since 2008 in the basic form as it is now. Operating sessions have found out some problems that needed to be fixed. No further changes are planned except to finish scenery and wagon weathering.

What's the optimum number of operators needed to run it properly ?
