    Im partial to a transparent distressed blue. I’m the only one in my area doing blue modules so it’s easy for me to show them to others, I just say the blue ones are mine. My club’s modules are black, and another club member uses battleship grey on his. There is another club in my area that does use a brown that could be owl brown… come to think of it my Tram layout is stained a dark cherry color so I’m kinda guilty there too.

    Hello
    First, I have released some T-track modules which I placed on sale at 29.99 each for the next few weeks.
    Second doing a drop-down bridge module and have a question. Right now, the drop is a 2 x 6-inch drop.
    Aas shown in the photo thinking of making it a little wider so a section of Kato 20-40 fits on it at each end.
    On mine I'm using our bridges so the Kato track will not work on them so going to add a section of flex between the ends, so the width does not really matter to me.
    And suggestions on it?
    thanks

    I think a valley width to fit the standard 186mm (7-5/16") long Unitrack bridges and viaducts will be popular with customers.

    However, Kato's largest standard, through-truss, 248mm long bridges (single and double track) can also be accommodated in a single module, with a 29mm/33mm straight track piece on each end. However, that may not leave enough room for adequate mechanical structure on both ends of a single module. The bridge would be slightly off-center (by 2mm) in the module. But such a bridge is visually much more impressive than the shorter Unitrack bridges.

    Andy I am changing the file to use the short 20-45 62 mm sections on each end so the standard 186 MM bridge can be used and will have it done soon. Hope in a week or so as have 3 shows in 3 weeks to end this month and start next month.
    Do need to get some ordered for a test build

    Well, have the bridge module ready to go and will get on the web site tomorrow They will list for 36.99
    but will have on sale for the next few weeks at 31.99 and the straight and corner modules at 29.99.
    The bridge module is set up for using the Kato 20-40 or 20-45 sections on the ends and either the Kato 20-010
    124mm track section or the bridge. I'm using the 20-045 flex connection section for my display module and out bridges.
    Photo shows our 60 covered bridge I'll have out next week.
