Have you ever wanted to own your own railway?
Well here's your chance!
The iconic Penwood Model Railway site at Jaspers Brush is for sale.
The 2.15 hectare site (slightly over five acres), just outside the historic village of Berry also has a development application approval for six single bedroom units and a manager's residence to be constructed alongside the existing model railway track.
Patrick Tynan, of LJ Hooker Nowra, is offering the property for sale and said it was an "unusual" opportunity.
"It's not everyday you get to offer a railway for sale, that's for sure," Mr Tynan said.
"It's not that often one comes up for sale. They certainly aren't in every suburb."

He said the property would suit someone who has trains or railways as "a hobby", or alternatively "someone who wants to run a business from the site."
Les Irwin purchased the original property 25 years ago, with the Penwood Miniature Railway opening in 2000. It was temporarily closed after a stoush over road access, but reopened in August 2013.
The Penwood Railway Club currently runs trains nearly every month.
In addition to the track, the property currently has a number of railway bridges, sheds, as well as a railway siding and station, train turntable and other infrastructure that is included as part of the sale.
The proposed development site, which will be made up of three sets of two cabins each and the manager's residence, is situated on the inside of the railway track loop.
"Perfect for investors, the site presents as an excellent opportunity for short stay holiday rentals to be constructed within the grounds of one of Berry's popular tourist attractions," Mr Tynan said.
"It's an exciting opportunity."
