    Default Completed my first N T-Track Module

    I just completed my first N T-Track Module. I'm finding that I really enjoy working on these modules. They're fast and easy to do. I started work, using pictures of the mock-upas a guide, Friday AM and just finished today at 12 noon. Of course the module was already built by the club (who own it) and I did the rest. Everything I did now belongs to the club. And I don't have an issue with that at all.

    I've attached some pictures of different views.
    See ya

    Lookin' good Ron! Did you design the content of the module yourself or were you following someone else's design? The only question I have is regarding the grade crossings. What about between the rails (and leading up to the rails on the outside)?

    Overall it seems like a great approach, you get to do everything in a short period of time!

    Very cool, and a good job on the module.

    You've actually inspired me to look into T-Track as a project for my Cub Scouts. Not sure if we'll do it this year, but it looks promising.

    I was just given the blank box, painted light green, with two tracks on it. I designed what went on the box. I played around with until I came up with a good mock-up and then started to work it. I'm starting work on the second one today. It will be an Military type design as in part of an Army Base.

    Thanks TD- This should be a great project for the Cub Scouts.

    See ya

    "when Ya get done with it" - the 64,000 dollar question! Sorry, couldn't resist!

    That is the $64,000 question. I've started three layouts, 1st one completed then scraped. Started 2nd full room got laying track the had to tear it up. . Started my current (3rd) maybe I'll get it completed and finally run some trains. . They say, " Third time the charm." I hope so.

    See ya
