After much thought and many starts & stops, I have decided to change my focus in scale and the size of my goal layout. The biggest issue is that the place I have is not conducive to what I can come up with in HO scale. Probably the main issue is that the room is small & any layout will have to share the space. Ok, that probably means a smaller scale. The assortment of supplies in N scale is more than adequate, yes not as much detail, but that is all right.. In researching the possibilities, the N-Trak concepts came to the surface. Previously I thought this idea was to confining and more focused on developing a module to take to a remote location to run trains with others. This time the T-Trak idea sunk in. The light weight & size nature is very appealing. Because of the room limitations, both will be important. The Layout in its finished form will be around the walls. The bottom of the module will rest on the height of the top door & window moldings. Most of the train running there will likely be continuous. Although there will be layout features, like engine facilities with a possible turn table, yard & staging as well as industries. The module construction from start to completely finished will be done on a work bench. It is anticipated that several modules can be brought together on the bench for point to point or switching activities. In some ways the high layout provides a storage/static display area as well as potential dynamic train work. Considering the space limits, that is my appears to be the best option. After playing with Any Rail. the challenge is to stick to the T-Trak standards. Will need to tweak some stuff as I go. It seems the Kato unitrak is set up for mostly straight line running. Curves seem to require a 90 degree turn because of the super elevation features. A first cut is shown here: http://www.llxlocomotives.com/?p=2757 Comments welcome.
