This blog documents the progress of a finescale model railway layout based on the locality of Kingsvale, NSW, on the Blayney-Cowra-Demondrille line, circa 1953. Kingsvale is a fruit growing area and is the first station from Demondrille when heading north towards Cowra. It is the only crossing loop between
Demondrille and Young. Demondrille is on the main south and was the location of extensive railway infrastructure including a coal bunker to service locomotives on the main line.
