6 Farm Module 2011 In Service To be measured
Notes This two track to three track module with a right hand crossover is built on a plywood base. It started out plain, then the fields, fence and hedges were added, and finally the small Auhagen barn. Years of use have taken their toll on the fence. It needs rebuilding or replacing.
Changes are coming to this module. The crossover will be removed and the front turnout replaced with a #6. This will require replacing the fence and redoing the front scenery. In 2018 a Farm Yard sound module was added. Currently controlled by a pushbutton.

7 Wye Access Module 2011 In Service To be measured
Notes This two track to three track module with a left hand crossover started out as a mirror image of module 6. In 2013 the front line was extended to be part of the wye. Then the rear line was added as an industrial access line to the Station corner. It is built on a plywood base. In 2017 track jumpers were added to route power past turnouts that were no longer passing power through.
Changes are planned for this module. With the move to #6 turnouts for all mainline turnouts and crossovers, this module will become a straight through module.

2018 A turnout has been added to the front line to connect with the third line on the city corner. The scenery has been upgraded.
This module will be the first to have its turnouts replaced by #6s. First the front line, then the back line. The back line will require a revised track alignment across this module and module # 29.

2018-09 Module 08 has been rebuilt with Kuehn #6 turnouts. One was broken and rebuilt. This was the third rebuilding of some of the track and has shown the limits of the rebuilding process. Removing the glued down track from a foam module damages the surface. The foam surface is very rough after track has been removed twice.

16 Right Hand Wye Module 2013 Stored serviceable To be Measured
Notes The former inside corner(module 10) was rebuilt to this. It uses R2 which is a bit sharp for some equipment but as it is only ever crossed at slow speeds it is OK. The curved piece of track that crosses the module joint is removeable.
Power control is by the switch on the module. If you want to enter/exit from the front track, throw the switch that way. Similarly if you want to enter/exit from the rear track, throw the switch that way. If the switch is in the center the power is off.
This low tech power control method was chosen because it works with both DC and DCC. A DCC auto reverse module would have precluded DC operation.
As the staging yard is connected to the right, this switch also controls the power to the staging track. Built on a foam base.
The reversing switch was replaced by a Dual Frog Juicer to hande auto reversing.

With talk of a right end ladder being made, this module needs a few changes. The bumpers on three tracks need to be removed and the track extended to the edge of the module.

This can be plugged on the end to terminate the tracks properly.

20 Fast Tracks Crossover Module 2014 In Service To be Measured
Notes This module was built to host a code 55 #6 crossover built using a Fast Tracks HOm turnout jig. At the time I did not expect Fast Tracks to make any TT-Scale modules so I purchased an HOm jig as it is the same gauge (12mm) as TT-scale. With a bit of fiddling with the tie spacing a reasonable result was obtained. With the exception of the end Bedding Track connection pieces, the straight track was hand laid on PC and wood ties. The turnouts work well with North American equipment but not with European equipment with deep flanges.

Now of course Fast Tracks makes TT-Scale jigs in code 55 and code 70, for #6 and #8 turnouts.
Shown sitting on the module are the two TT-Scale turnouts I built at the Modeling With The Masters Fast Tracks clinic at the Portland 2015 NMRA National convention. I have discussed with Fast Tracks on how to modify these so they will handle European equipment.
2018-07 - The turnouts have been modified to have wider flangways. Testing with a single cars show they work OK. This weekends setup at the BCSME has shown they work with everything but Triang equipment. That equipment will have to be modified to work with these turnouts.
As of August 2018 the turnout controls have been moved to the rear of the module to keep them out of reach of little hands.

22 Mini RH Crossover Non Standard Straight Module 2015 In Service To be Measured
Notes This short module (about 11 ") module was built to balance the non-standard Back Track Access module on the front of the display. There was just enough space for the RH crossover that was needed to provide better access to the wye track. Another layer of scenery material has been added since this picture was taken.
This module failed at VTE 2017. The connections in the turnouts stopped conducting power. This was fixed in 2018 after Western Rails 2017. Jumpers were added to both turnouts to conduct power past the bad turnout connections.

Notes The future of this module is uncertain. When the #6 crossover project reaches fruition, this crossover will no longer be used. It may be scapped or repurposed.
As the corner that is part of the wye is stored servicable, and module 15 is still available this could be rebuilt to provide access to the other end of the wye as modules 8 and 29 have lost this access due to rebuilding.

34 End Loop 1 September 2017 In Service Non Standard
Notes For years we have wanted a way to easily get inside of the display. With a loop on low tables this is a pain in the back. After contemplating reverse loops for years I finally had them built this summer. The frames fold up into a compact carrying piece. The track is code 83 rail in Tillig tie strips on cork.
A Tam Valley Dual Frog Juicer handles the auto-reverse function. except for moving rails closing up the auto reverse gaps these work well.
Tibi suggested a better way to wire them. This was done for VTE 2017 in November 2017.
The BR3 (15.6" 396mm) curves are a bit tight for some equipment. They could be rebuilt easily to BR4. That could be a 2019 project unless other projects get in the way.
The reversing modules do violate a few features of TT-Tracks; they are of a non-standard size and they are not light. The weight is manageable. The verticle protrusions have since been removed.

As of VTE 2018, it was decided to rebuild these to a larger radius. R4 will fir with a few modifications. R5 was contemplated but it would require too many extensions to the loop module.

36 30" Corner 1 October 2017 In Service 86mm
Notes The first 45 degree 30" curve.
For a while we have known that our corner curves (BR4 and BR5) are too sharp for good operation and appearance. After a period of doodling on the computer I came up with several designs for 30", 36" and one metre corners. The size is the square box that a pair of these set up as a 90 degree corner would fit in.
As a pair of 30" inch corners would fit inside the corner transporation boxes I was already using, I built a pair.
The base is foam. The track is code 83 rail handlaid on Clover Valley PC and wood ties with half BG2 pieces at the ends. Cork roadbed with spacers is under the ties. The curves are nominal BR6 and BR7 (R6 -- 525 mm -- 20.7 in. - R7 -- 568 mm -- 22.4 in.)
This module is a power connector.
Initial impressions are that the trains look much better on these corners and that this is a project to pursue further.

Notes This will be a crossover made from #6 turnouts. Could be Fast Tracks, Kuehn or Tillig.
It is needed to make a matched pair of #6 RH and LH crossovers. Currently we will have two RH and one LH. Turnout control to be determined.

nn1, nn2, nn3, nn4 22.5 Degree Corners 2019 ?? Conjecture 86mm
Notes Designed to be equivalent to a 48" curve in HO Scale.
22.5 degrees makes a module small enough to fit in a standard module box.
Would need four of them to make a 90 degree curve.

nn LH #8 crossover module Conjecture 86mm
Notes This will be a crossover made from #8 turnouts built with a Fast Tracks jig.
It looks like a #8 crossover will need 20" of module plus space for the connecting track pieces. So it will be be a 24" long module built on a Woodland Scenics foam sheet. Turnout control to be determined but it will need something to control and power route the Fast Tracks turnouts.

"nn" Swayback module with RH Crossover To be built 2019 86mm
Notes This is to be a mirror image of module 42.
Some doodling was done to see if it could also include a crossover. As it looks like it will fit, the module will be built that way. Turnout control to be determined.
