These are articals that relate to laying track.
02-14-06 Track Lines and A Snag
I set up a work area to start drawing the track centerlines on to the new modules
04-09-06 Back To Work
After waiting over two months, I received my track order. The last couple times I have ordered from this company my order was promptly shipped. I guess I should have bought the track locally. Now I can get back to work.
05-29-06 Turnout Templates and Curves
I scanned in the turnouts as previously discussed. I imported them in to the track design software to compare them to the templates I was using.
06-15-06 Track Lines Completed
The track centerlines have been transferred to the last two modules.
The roadbed for the track has been laid. This part went quicker than I thought.
07-04-06 Trackwork Done On Two Modules
I used Peco flex track and turnouts. I used code 55 rail which will easily match the code 55 track on the original NTrak module.
07-10-06 Trackwork Completed
The track has been laid on the final two modules.
07-30-06 Up and Running
After years of planning and many months of construction, the layout is up and running.
I ballasted the track on the end loop module that I have been working on.
06-27-10 Corner Module Scenery
I worked on the scenery on the corner module that sits between the original NTrak module and the end loop module containing the mountain ridge and engine house.
I worked on ballasting the track running through the brewery complex.
11-26-11 Corner Module 2 Scenery
I worked on the scenery on the module that sits between the brewery complex module and the original NTRAK module.
