Module Standards

Hi Tom,

I agree that the Anderson PowerPoles are the best choice for electrical connections.

The GapMaster's are good too.

Instead of having one guy building ALL the interface plates...

I would have one guy make a few very robust interface plate jigs.

Then those jigs could be circulated around for everyone else to use.

However, it does work better down the road for setting up from show to show. And yes, I do have a TT-Tracks module already built, but if we're going to have adequate motive power by then, a Fremo style layout would be more conducive to causing excitement in your target audience.
Happy Railroadin'
