2017 Western Rails

Postby Bill Dixon » Thu Feb 02, 2017 1:46 am

Western Rails where TT-Scale began in greater Vancouver, is next month on March 19, 2017 at the Cameron Community Centre in Burnaby BC.

It is time to submit a layout plan.
So assuming the usual suspects and no new modules I am proposing a shrunken Vancouver Train Expo layout.

So far I am planing to attend, and by now I have 3 continuous modules that I am planing to bring along.

I think that module is getting a cat scan before it goes on the road.

Very nice voyttek, what is the material for the structures? Not an adapted TT kit that I have seen.....plastic sheet and window castings?

Fantastic work as usual Voytek! If I may offer a suggestion: the land area over the rails looks a bit shiny. Perhaps dull it down a bit (unless it's just the camera making it look that way).

Hi voyttek

This is in addition to your two double length modules to make a scene 5 standard straight modules long?

I believe it will be the lengths of 6 standard modules. Voitek's new module is also double length. :dance:

Bill, I will also be there with the usual set of yellow modules. I do not have Bjoern's bridge and baseball modules, though.

Yah, you are correct. I built it from scratch, based on Auhagen sellection of material.


Bill asked me:

"This is in addition to your two double length modules to make a scene 5 standard straight modules long?"

No, I built one additional double length module, so all together my modules will measure app 3 meters.

In real life it looks much better - I guess it is a bit of flash from my camera.
