NEXT time, I'll remember the camera.
We’re honored to announce Jacksonville Terminal Company as a MAJOR sponsor of The National T-TRAK Layout for 2019 in Salt Lake City. Thank you so much!!!
Has there been any further information about the Kato module kits?
I have not heard anything since I built my sample and wrote a review/critique and sent it in to Kato.
I saw them on a Japanese web site. Could not determine if they will be available without or with track. Converting Yen to Dollars they seem a bit pricey for my budget. Will see what an e-tailer might do with a slight discount, if and when they come to North America. I do like the Masterpiece kits...
The sample did come with track. Two sections of double track so you don't have to worry about spacing between the tracks. I did provide my own wiring harnesses, some equivalent to the #24-818 that I built up myself.
The modules on the Japanese website are not the ones that Kato will be releasing in the US market.
The Kato modules will have the concrete tie track included.
Well, I am not interested in that track style. Hmmm. If available without track... Otherwise, sounds like I won't be a buyer.
The concrete tie track has the advantage of a slightly closer tie spacing that appears more prototypical.
You can paint the ties to make them appear like wood.
I agree, I would prefer wood ties.
I also would love to see a unitram version.
A very simple solution would be for them to offer the module kit without track. Also, they could easily sell a matching track "kit", with tie style option.
You're just not contributing to their desired profit margins are you?
This is capitalism- give them what they think they want. The rest can get lost....
I still have my T-TRAK modules that I bought a while ago. They're sitting in my ex's garage along with all of my other stuff. Now that I'm working again, hopefully my modelling life will get back on track!
