    Bruce....
    I really enjoyed the FB page. All the videos..all the pics. I spent about an hour checking everything out ! I had to take a break for some breakfast but plan on going back to FB for more ! Congrats on the record for largest layout ^5

    I do have one question though...mostly out of curiosity:
    Is there normally that big of a gap between modules where they connect to each other ??? I saw some gaps that appeared to be almost 1/2 inch...:confused:

    Normally no. I noticed those gaps too. My club's T-Trak division don't have gaps like that for any of our modules. And they were built by many different people.

    If you look at T-Trak's published standards, the math doesn't add up to such large gaps between modules. If I had to guess, it's user error in the build.

    But they still work! :D

    I built all of mine with a slightly larger gap. It give an ability to shift slightly if there's a flaw in lining them up.

    Why do they interview people and not show the layout?

    Huh? The majority of the video were showing the modules, granted not every module was shown else it would have been a long video! :)

    If I wanted to look at fat white men I would look in the mirror.

    Any frame without modules is a wasted frame.

    I apologize that my being ‘fat’ has offended you...
    Since having emergency surgery to save my life, 11 years ago, my daily activity changed considerably. I went from being on my feet, 10-12 hours a day, 6 days a week, to an almost sedentary lifestyle, comparatively.
    I confess that it has been difficult trying to adjust my habits accordingly, so I’ve gained almost 70 lbs in these years since.
    I am starting to do something about it, finally, and I do appreciate you pointing it out to help motivate me.
    From here on out, I promise not to post any more, less you feel more offended or upset at my fatness.
    Take care,
    Bruce

    Never said I was offended about you being "fat".

    Seems we are all "fat" and attempting to lose weight.

    Hate that videos include more than the initial "identity" frames of the interview.

    Goes back to paying money for those Allen Keller layout videos and have half the video of someone sitting in a chair.

    Sorry if you were offended

    Good job Bruce! Your interview about the t track layout was well done. The layout was really amazing and demonstrated the versatility of t track. I only wish I had been able to see it in person.

    OT for a second- Did they ever convert any of those videos to DVD format? Or were they always just VHS?

    Many of the videos were made available on DVD and a lot of the footage is streaming on model railroad academy.

    Have any of you incorporated your T-Trak mondules into your personal layouts to make them more versatile? Was thinking if a person did that it would make the module more useful than just at shows.

    The T-TRAK modules I own constitute my home layout. I know that to be true for others also.

    For those of us who may not be so easily offended, if not here then where should we go to follow along on your T-Trak exploits?
