Introduction

The module is the basic component of a T-TRAK layout. Details of the modules that will be part of a layout, whether at a local clubhouse or at a train show, are vital to the successful design of the layout, in which various modules are interconnected. This page contain details of all T-TRAK modules owned by Members and Associate Members of the North Raleigh Model Railroad Club (NRMRC) as well as Club-owned modules and modules on loan to the club.

This page was inspired by, and uses the same symbols and categories as developed by the Northern Virginia NTRAK Club (NVNTRAK).

What is a T-TRAK Module

A basic module is approximately the size of a 8-1/2" x 11" piece of paper, slightly modified for use with Kato Unitrack. Other dimensions are possible, but this is the most common.

There are normally two standard tracks on a T-TRAK module — the two main lines. The main lines are designated (from the front of the module) Red and Yellow. Additional tracks can be added to modules for specific needs, e.g. sidings, industrial spurs..

By connecting modules together, several people can build a layout limited only by the number of available modules, the number of available tables and the square feet of available space. The smallest layout would be modules on one table. A larger layout could use over 500 modules.

The basic reference for T-TRAK modules is the T-TRAK Standards & Recommended Practices available from the NTRAK Modular Railroading Society Inc. at www.t-trak.org, or from your local T-TRAK club.

Special Feature Modules

There are many special features that can be added to a basic module to improve its operation and appearance, and enhance the railroading experience presented by the Club. This section defines these special features and their symbols as they will be used in the Roster and Details sections.


Corner Module Icon Corner Module

Some modules are corner modules. These can be inside or outside, etc.

Industry Icon Industrial District

Some members have constructed modules featuring industries and associated trackwork. These are designated as "Industrial District" modules. They provide locations for trains to drop off and/or pick up cars.

Junction Module Icon Junction Module

This is a special-purpose module which permits the joining of multiple module loops together along a "backbone" to create a larger layout.

Military Icon Military

Some modules include things of a military nature.

Siding Icon Siding

Some modules feature a passing siding(s) connected to one of the main tracks.

Saucer Icon Weird

Some modules are just plain strange...

Yard Icon Yard Facility

In order to provide a facility for deploying and recovering trains, several members have constructed modules featuring yards. These tend to be busy places for keeping trains running during a show.

T-TRAK Module Roster

The following is a roster of the T-TRAK modules owned by Members and Associate Members of the NRMRC, by the Club itself or on loan to NRMRC. If a module has no icons in the Features column, it is generally a plain module with only the two T-TRAK tracks.

Modules are listed by category, then alphabetically by name:

Module names in blue are clickable links that will take you to a page with much more detailed information about the module.
