N Trak Sawmill - 1974

This is a model for an NTrak module made in 1974 or so before N scale really got started. This building and several others were made by an aeronautical engineer who was friends with Jim Fitzgerald, Ben Davis, etc. She made the model just for fun and never made another as she was not a model railroader. The building has a complete interior. I wrote an article about it in N Scale railroading. This module is in the Belmont Shore Club museum as is the first NTrak module ever made.

      Yes, Ben Davis. As I understand it, Ben and Jim Fitzgerald were BSRR members at the same time back then. Before my time.

      I started in NTRAK, 1977. This reminds me- Do you have the 10th Anniversary book? Still have mine. Just looked. And there's a picture of Ben.

      I don't have any NTrak books. I used to keep the monthly publications, but I stopped when I got out of NTrak around 1993-94.

      Same here. I sold off my newsletters. Regret it now... Had them all from day one, in the blue binders. Only kept that one book. Still have one partially rebuilt 6 foot module. Maybe I'll finish it some day...
