Combined AsiaNrail / Ntrak layout in SF Bay Area
nscalestation posted a topic in Club and Show NewsAs part of the Hiller Aviation Museum's "Trains and Planes" exhibit, there will be a combined Ntrak / AsiaNrail layout set up for the week between April 12th and 19th. For this layout the AsiaNrail layout height will be lowered from 51" to 43" to match Ntrak's Mountain Division track and my new Hot Springs Junction module will make it debut as the connection between the two layouts. With adjustable legs, in the future this new module can also be used as an AsiaNrail only or Ntrak only module. Scenery on the module is rudimentary at this point but a week long setup is a great way to test track work, etc. The AsiaNrail part of the layout will also feature several new or rebuilt modules. The Hiller Aviation Museum is located next to the San Carlos Airport and can be seen from US Highway 101. The hours for the exhibit are 11:00am to 3:00pm. More details are on the Hiller web site: http://www.hiller.org/index.shtml Either Paul Ingraham or myself or both of us will be there every day along with several members of Peninsula Ntrak. If you are in the Bay Area, it would be great to see you. I'll be sure to post some photos from the exhibit afterwards.
