A good idea... more real estate!
I would caution against the 'Disney Matterhorn' effect... with the summit in the exact center of the loop...
A more natural effect might be to model one quadrant of a mountain... with the summit near the corner furthest from the track entrance. This gives the impression of a bigger mountain, and allows two different tunnel portal treatments with some separation between them.

I made these today.

There are only two of them because I got the last two plastic holders from the local Staples. For our layout we need about eight, I guess.

I attached here the PDF, so you can print your own if you so wish.

My van that died the morning of Vancouver Train Expo setup has been replaced by one ten years never and in much better shape.
If I can find a buyer, either as a repairable van or for parts, I'll get a few $ to spend on building reverse loops otherwise I'll get a tax receipt from a charity.

Laser Cut module kits.

Some time ago I mentioned that I had obtained two laser cut module kits from a company.

These are now available from: Precision Design Company.

The link to the page with the modules is:

These have been redesigned to be 1 mm short to allow for proper overhang of the bedding track connectors.

Holy crap at $32 they are a great deal! If I didn't already have the wood cut for my next 2 modules I would buy this.

TT-Tracks - a year in review.

The end of a year is time to look back and reflect on what has passed and what is to come.

Given all that has happened in 2016, both with TT-Tracks and personally, it should come across as a bad year for me, but...

TT-Tracks was great, good displays at Western Rails, BCSME, Indianapolis, Chilliwack and Vancouver Train Expo, new modules, new models.

Personally (in chronological order) my wife moved out, medical issues cropped up, my van died and my father passed away two weeks before Christmas (he was 85 and had be fading for the last year so it was not unexpected).
On the up side, my wife came back, surgery happened fast(healing well), I have a newer van and dad provided for us (my sister and I), in his estate.

So all in all I feel good about the year.

Next year will be better.

Attached is a little something for everybody - a TT-Tracks Calendar. I don't think there are too many mistakes in it. You can only proof read something so many times before your eyes start to pass over errors.

Have Happy New Year everybody.
In 2017 help grow TT-Scale and have FUN!
