Kato, in concert with Woodland Scenics, is going ahead with their T-TRAK module kit.
It will be interesting to know how these kits will price...
That was my thought as well...it looks like an easy enough build to do without the kit... But, price the kit right then provide tack and scenery kits as add-ons... hell even a train set... As a father of young children, if it was priced right it's a perfect entry into the hobby.
Good ideas, in my opinion.... But I would like to believe a perfect way to enter this hobby, regardless of age.
the track is provided in each kit.
T-TRAK has been getting LOTS of recognition...
Model Railroader magazine....
Ken Patterson's "What's neat in Model Railroading"
(skip to the 43:25 minute mark)
A T-TRAK layout, once again, will be present at the NSE Convention in Chicago this July.
An excellent and informative interview video Bruce! Thanks for posting.
T-trak is exactly what model railroading needs. This will bring lots of people into the hobby.
Bruce, that must be you being interviewed in the first video. Am I right?
That or you've got a twin.
Ken does a interesting job. Just not...well.... I'll reserve my comments. He promotes the hobby and that can't be all bad.
My N Scale club, NNJ-N-TRAK & Northeastern T-Trak(Fay Chin) myself included, were running the T-Trak display at the Kato booth in Springfield.
I was there too on day 1, running my little Arnold B&M SW1 and trying to help out!
I have a couple ideas percolating in my head for TTrak modules and the Kato kit looks interesting. I'm hoping they will have a double available.
They are not doing doubles...
look to these T-TRAK module kit manufacturers for kits other than singles and small corners"
Do you know what CMR charges for shipping a double? Master Piece is like 40% of the cost (under $100 I think) which is fine since they are bulky products.
