Here is an update of my modular plans - in three parts.
Looks good Andrew. Where are you at building these modules?
I have built the frames for the two modules making up the town. I have completed most of the buildings, and I have the kits for the others. All the rolling stock required for these industries has been acquired
However, with so much other stuff going on (e.g. kids, home renos, etc) it is going very slowly...
Good Luck Andrew, the module plans look great.
Are these HO-Track or N-Track modules?
Looks great, Andrew! I'm going to be paying attention to your progress on this one. :thumb:
Will - they are HOTrak modules. The middle two are considered "Free-mo" - that is, they have a single main line centred between the front and back. The turntable module is a transition from free-mo to conventional (two main lines at the "front" of the module), and the junction is, well, a junction
Steve - Thanks! and I hope you have a long attention span! It will be a while, I am afraid... Just the nature of my railroading these days...
Looks Really Good Andrew
Mason, how did you do your drawings and display them? I have AutoCAD which does great for drawing modules, but I have been unable to post a drawing. I'm pretty good at using the program, but not that hot at using the computer online.
The drawings were done by a friend who is very talented with XTrkCAD. He saved them as gifs (or jpegs, can't recall) and I posted them here. You need to make sure your drawings conform to the specs for The Gauge... there is a thread in the Photo forum about how to post.
