Just, for the love of god, please make sure to take the blade out first... the internet has ruined me.

My point, though, is that if you're gonna fire up a power tool, you can probably already build the frames yourself.

Also, Bruce is right, those Red River kits look beautiful. The Marshall TX station in particular. Damn!

I’m pleased to announce a project I’ve been working on, with Alex Kovach of Kato, the last few months...
“NTRAK has contracted with Kato to produce their caboose with the new T-TRAK logo. These should be available in late April, in the NTRAK Company Store, priced at $45.00 including shipping.”
The last ( and only) Kato T-TRAK caboose was commissioned back in 2001 and sported the original heritage T-TRAK logo.
This new run will feature the new ‘speed lettering- double track’ logo.

I just use leftover wood. Add a lattice strip on one side to cut more than one out of a piece of two foot wood.

How about a 2-pack of covered hoppers, one with the original 'heritage' logo and the other with the new ‘speed lettering - double track’ logo?

I hear you.  Since I am only building one module (with no plans to continue building additional modules because I'm not going to be able to freely attend a lot of shows), I splurged and bought a laser cut frame.  It also helps that my planned scenery doesn't project below the track in my plan, so for $26.50, it was a no-brainer.  If, like you, I were to build additional modules, yeah, I'd follow suit and use all sorts of scraps that I have lying around to build the frame.

Very original.  Is it called "Redneck's T-Trak"?  :)  It sure shows that T-Trak module doesn't have to be nicely finished to be functional.

Have dark brown fabric that needs to be added as facing.

Just showing the barebones of the operation.

Something else I've enjoyed, about building/having a T-TRAK module, is the ease that they can be used as a photo diorama...
I took this module to an open field a few minutes from my house, then photographed it in the natural sunlight.

In years past at the ARS-Springfield train show, Moxie had a booth and gave away sample cups of their distinctively flavored beverage.
The exhibitor would tell the kiddies that it was "just like Coca-Cola" and then bystanders would get a good chuckle out of watching their expressions change as the medicinal taste hit home.

I LOVE Moxie. I know it's a New England staple, but we have a pizza place in Windber, PA that still sells it.

Alternate version:

Every night, he plants a new tree.
He asks excitedly "Did you say Ménage à Trois?"
No, I said "Ed's Law."
