    Looks good Andrew. Where are you at building these modules?

    Hi Robin,

    I have built the frames for the two modules making up the town. I have completed most of the buildings, and I have the kits for the others. :) All the rolling stock required for these industries has been acquired ;)

    However, with so much other stuff going on (e.g. kids, home renos, etc) it is going very slowly... :(

    Good Luck Andrew, the module plans look great.

    Are these HO-Track or N-Track modules?

    Looks great, Andrew! I'm going to be paying attention to your progress on this one. :thumb:

    Thanks guys.

    Will - they are HOTrak modules. The middle two are considered "Free-mo" - that is, they have a single main line centred between the front and back. The turntable module is a transition from free-mo to conventional (two main lines at the "front" of the module), and the junction is, well, a junction ;)

    Steve - Thanks! and I hope you have a long attention span! It will be a while, I am afraid... Just the nature of my railroading these days... ;)

    Mason, how did you do your drawings and display them? I have AutoCAD which does great for drawing modules, but I have been unable to post a drawing. I'm pretty good at using the program, but not that hot at using the computer online.

    Hi Tweet.

    The drawings were done by a friend who is very talented with XTrkCAD. He saved them as gifs (or jpegs, can't recall) and I posted them here. You need to make sure your drawings conform to the specs for The Gauge... there is a thread in the Photo forum about how to post.
