    Hi,

    I'm looking to make an N trak module with a closed loop on it, so can run at home / independently of the others while at the club meetings. Does anyone have any suggestions for the track plan?

    Thanks

    Evan,

    I built a module to Australian NTRAK standards with the exception that I added an extra 150mm (6 inches) to the width of the module behind the skyboard.

    I ran tracks down this hidden section in order to create an operable "layout" at home. This was accomplished by building two "end" (or "turning") modules which attach at either end of my standard module.

    Tracks run along the front of my standard module as usual then loop around to the rear, run down the back of the module and return to the front again via another loop at the other end. It's a 3-module mini home layout based around a standard NTRAK module.
