I know this is a slotcar group, but I'm sure some of you also have model trains.
Anybody selling HO scale trains and or layouts.
The closer to Canberra the better.

Trains, planes and automobiles - they all go well together as a hobby.

I have N, HO, ON30 and G scale trains :)

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you have an electrical problem.

Steve, does the train layout have to be braided or will copper tape be ok?

Sorry, I don't know much about toy trains only that they are used by old men. ;)

If you have a Scorpius controller and car chip (decoder) you can your loco and have instant digital wireless train. Add a Scorpius Lane Brain and you can change tracks and have anti collision. You could program your own unique route and store that route on the Scorpius decoder and it will reproduce that route automatically. Or use the Scorpius WAM to have wireless analogue trains.
Now add the Scorpius dongle to your laptop to gather train location telemetry and activate functions accordingly. Use the wireless Lane Brain to wirelessly operate signals. Use the upcoming Scorpius wireless light board to operate lights, horn etc. on the loco. Use the Lane Brain to activate auto reversing.

Yup

You could have different power curves for steam locomotives, diesel and electric engines as well :)
