    Was thinking maybe we have enough modular modelers here to set up a forum for them.What do you think yes or no.

    I have an N trak corner module made up and am wondering about making more but so far I have not made contact with a club.

    Being the instigator of this poll I of course voted yes.

    If you have any thoughts on the subject feel free to post them here. :D

    Absolutely YES, as I belong to the Sacramento Modular Railroaders and my home track plans call for a modular design.

    Although I am not a modular person, I voted yes for the reason that there should be a little something for everyone, even if it is just a little one or a big one. The point is that,
    wheather you do modular or not, we are all still doing modeling, isn't that the whole point?

    I am undecided on this one... Much of the info that pertains to modules is already included elsewhere (HO or N, track planning, DCC, and catch-alls Technical and General, etc, etc...). What does make modular unique is the benchwork... is that enough for a separate area....?

    If I seem a bit reluctant, please bear in mind I am a member of www.hotrak.ca , an Ottawa-area modular club... :) . And no, I haven't voted yet... ;)

    Well I voted "NO" because I have enough to do on my own layout. However if there was a Modular forum, yes I would look and read and maybe even post some times.
    Cheers

    Although I'll hardly ever build a module (to whom should I connect it here in Switzerland? :( ), you have my yes.

    I can imagine that module builders have specific problems, which are irrelevant to us 'normal' layout builders, like connecting modules, levelling, organisation of a big modular layout event etc. So there should be topics enough for 'modulers'.

    I have no interest in a modular forum, but won't vote no, I don't see why a no option is even given. If someone has no interest, they won't read it. If there are a sufficient number of people interested, go for it.

    OK, so I came back and voted yes, as perhaps there are enough unique challenges with modular railroading to warrant a separate area.

    I just came back from the weekend meet of www.hotrak.ca where we had a great discussion about standards and design, as well as some construction issues, and transportation challenges...!

    Catt,
    My last existing layout was 8' X 10' modular, I belong to a modular group now, and I've built an Ntrak module........so I guess I'd better vote yes! :D :wave:
