John,

I'm with Lee, the legs on the modules look as good as the layout on top.

How heavy is each module?

Besides working on the dynamometer car, I put the finishing touches on a scratch-built creamery I need for the milk traffic on my layout last week.  Evergreen clapboard siding and Grandt Line windows and doors along with assorted milk can castings, etc., contibuted to the final product.

The  big end loop module if pretty heavy , about the same as a NTRAK POFF

The 1 foot modules tend to be fairly light .. 1x4 lumber with some lauan ply

Ron . here are links to our standards. They are not the same as OneTrak that NVNTrak pioneered. We are trying to take it one level further, with Atlas Code 55, Powerpoles, and all DCC ..

Great job on that creamery.  Picked up a KenRay Borden's "Butterdish" Milk Tank Car yesterday as the train show.  Nice little kit if your looking for some different milk cars.

Was trying to find some Micro Kristal Klear at the train show.  Couldn't find any so went to Kline's and got some.  While at the show i did pick up some Testor's Clear Parts Cement and Window Maker.  Had a couple brass cabin cars what I wanted to add glass to.  I actually liked the Testor's product much better.  Thinner and has a good applicator.  Give it a try on your windows.

After getting the scenery roughed in and cork layed the last two weeks its track time. My buddy Jon came over and helped me with some track work. We got the two tracks out of the helix and and around the peninsula. Put 8 of the 16 tortises in today. There will be seven new industries to switch in the new area. Lots of wiring to do now!!
At the station.







Headed to the helix with new FVM boxcars.
