I was starting to get burned out on messing with Atlas Code 55 track so I decided to take a break from working on my Coal Country plan and spend some time with my TTRAK modules.
I was recently discussing my foray into TTRAK and was asked for a quick how-to on how I build my modules. Here it is.
This post is generally just a photo dump of some TTRAK stuff that either I or my parents have been working on.
I’ve been interested in the TTRAK modular model railroading format since it came out. When BANTRAK started TTRAK activities, I decided that I wanted to try and see what I could do with the format.
OneTRAK is an extension of the NTRAK specs that allows modelers to build interoperable modules with a single track. This allows us to model scenes where the NTRAK three track spec would not be realistic. It also allows us to build shallower pieces (1′ as opposed to the NTRAK standard of 2′). This makes them […]
