T-Trak Surburban-Style

Hello to each other,

 

After a long time I have now decided to use the T-Trak system for future exhibitions in addition to the IG-Nippon modules. The reason is the even earlier elimination of the hobby room in the next 2 years. As a result, I don't have the option to put larger modules down. The small T-Traks fit neatly on the shelves in the basement and therefore take up less space than expected.

 

It starts with a T-Trak Single (from TrainSetter GbR) to research several methods for the future T-Traks. Because I haven't had a lot of experience in building landscapes and detailing. A suburban scene is envisaged, similar to Hakodate or Sapporo, with warehouses, company buildings and residential buildings close together. There are also plans to illuminate vehicles and houses. The period of the presentation (autumn) is somewhere between 1990 and 2014, as this period is completely covered by my collection. I think it will be a lot of work and I suspect that the module is overloaded with too many details.

In the picture, the first steps, gluing the tracks with power supply and positioning the catenary masts. But I will not use the Kato plate-parts to build the masts because the distance between the pantograph and the overheadwire is too big. I would like to reduce the distance from a maximum of 2mm. The distance between the masts is 155mm and 76.5mm to the edges with a 1mm gap to the next T-Trak.

 

Regards,

 

Ulli

It take a little bit of time, but now I am nearly finished with the ballast of the tracks. Now I have to wait for hardening of the glue. Then I can start the color treatment
