Nope...
But we will break it in St Louis in 2020. We’ll be celebrating the 20th anniversary of T-TRAK at the Gateway 2020 National Train Show.
We’ll also be hosting a banquet/buffet for all T-TRAK, NTRAK, and FreeMo-N participants.

HI Bruce,

Just an idea, but maybe the org could create a PayPal account to receive donations from those willing to support via their hobby budget rather than their personal budget.

This would allow me, and possibly others, to support the effort more readily.

If you go to the NTRAK company store, and scroll down to the ‘donate’ button, you’ll see that it is, indeed, a Paypal account.

Work continues on structures that will populate the town of "Hutton", my Wife's maiden name.
You've all seen these structures before, and I've probably built them 4 or 5 times in my lifetime, but my intention on every T-TRAK modules is to use an 'off-the-shelf' item and build all kits OOB. I've also had to modify and cut a few structures as these two triples are only 14" deep, so part of the downtown area of Hutton will be made up of background, shallow relief structures...
 The lovely former Ms. Hutton...



the standard DPM two story structures, painted and weathered, along with a few others that many will recognize.















Posing the structures on the module to get a feel for the final placement...

The official T-TRAK standards document-this document addresses the bus standard first proposed over three years ago.

Michael Buhrer, of Switzerland, allowed me to share his photos of his very first T-TRAK double...
A great example of a very well done piece of model railroading, all on the space of a T-TRAK double! (he states that he still needs to add grade crossing details)

I saw that on the PRR modeling FB groups...  That just blows my mind.  As someone with deep roots in Lancaster County, PA, I doubt i could ever come close to achieving the look he has from the other hemisphere.  From the ladder grabs on the cat poles to the color of the ballast, that is 100% unambiguously some of the very best modeling of Pennsy under the wires I've ever seen by anyone in any scale.  That it's a T-Trak module using Unitrack makes it all the sweeter.

Thanks for sharing!

The quality of model scenery that comes out of Europe is incredible.  That is magnificent modeling.

@arbomambo - can you ask him how he does his Catenary?  That wire is amazing realistic.
