C&O Mountain Sub Planning Meeting

We are tentatively planning a C&O Mtn Sub planning meeting this weekend after the Potomac Division Minicon in Annandale, VA. If you would like to attend please send me a PM to coordinate the meet-up.



If you are wondering what the pizza box has to do with this, then come to the meeting.

Is there a way for those of us that cannot attend the meeting, still be able to participate?

Thanks,
The S.

Best regards,

The entire layout must fit in the same space as a pizza box?

Mmmm....pizza. Mandatory use of track that is compatible with pizza cutters?

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Sure, I'll post the results of the meeting on the C&O Mtn Sub blog. There is bound to be a way that one could build a module that is not vital to the layout but still meets the spirit of the subdivision.

I had lunch with Marty today and he is pushing for a fine scale approach. Code 55, long radii turnouts, detailed scenery, etc. I used Peco code 55 and Peco insul frogs turnouts. Yikes, I may have to upgrade.

If you're gonna do it, and it's somewhat from scratch, you GOTTA do it right. That's it!

This from the guy that wants to do Horseshoe curve modules with c80, 1.5" track spacing and no grades... ::)

Look into the Fee-moN spec or what the guys did for their MiNi Mod-U-Trak might be a good place to start based on what Marty was looking at,

I inquired not too long ago and MMUT hadn't posted its standards yet.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

We haven't published any standards publicly, but we'd be happy to fill in any blanks along the way. Just let Skibbe or I know.

That sounds perfect and in alignment with what I was thinking.
