do i expect to see any future timetables which make use of the currently un-used sidings and paths which are not touched in the current timetable? would be nice to see more shunts and more trains.
the UK simulations have several timetables where these AU ones dont seem to get any attention for their potential.

The "several timetables" for UK simulations have normally been produced by volunteers who have taken the time to research the subject and produce a TT which meets their aspiration for the sim. Perhaps you could do the same for Moss Vale so that others could share your vision of how you would like it to operate.

The issue with AUS is obtaining Timetable info as I don't beleive they have open access information like we do.

I work for railways in New Zealand, that is next country over from Australia.
If any sim creators are interested in making an NZ sim I have access to all line, signal, yard and train plan documents. It would be a walk in the park for anyone wanting to do so.

Is any of the information you can supply, scaled diagrams showing the exact location of the signals, track circuits, points etc? Or the interlocking control tables?

Yes they do show all of that. Except interlocking diagrams but it's all stock standard and can help with that.

Perhaps it would be better if this sort of conversation took place off-line.

Given that one person is in the UK and the other is in New Zealand, this is exactly the kind of conversation the internet allows you to have in near real time.

Thank you for that revealing insight. I was thinking more in terms of confidentiality than practicality.

Realised that there is a language problem which has given rise to the confusion. I have sat in many meetings where two participants agreed to "take things off-line". That was an indication that they would discuss the matter between themselves without bothering the rest of the meeting with the details. It was not a technological marker.

There are clearly many ways that future developments could be discussed "off-line" (i.e. outside the Forum) but "online" (i.e. in real time or close to real time) through Messenger, Skype, TeamSpeak, PM, e-mail, WhatsApp etc. etc.
