T-TRAK


Call For Modules
During the past year there has been much discussion on the subject of T-Trak within the Divisions of the Mid Central Region. The Board of Directors has decided to incorporate a T-Trak Layout into the regional convention starting with the 2019 Convention. While the “T-Trak” concept can be implemented in almost any scale, the current activities are directed towards N-Scale. A region-wide committee has been established to coordinate the activities of the divisions. Bruce DeMaeyer of Division 10 is the Regional Coordinator. Scott Benson will coordinate Division 4 activities.

The layout will be presented at The Bullet - 2019 in Boardman, Ohio on May 2-5, 2019.  In addition to members bringing their modules and incorporating them into the group layout, arrangements have been made to include the modules as a fourth category in the Convention Contest. Any NMRA member within the region is invited to participate. Your module can also be brought (by proxy) to the convention if you are unable to attend.
