Are people making their layouts modular when they build them? Is there a standard end that people are using as even though it wont happen often when I make my layout I would like it to be able to connect to other peoples modules if I ever took it to a show or something.
Yes MMW module ends is the current plan. Possibly with some adapted ones for the module joins in yards I remember seeing a diagram on the blog a while ago with all the dimensions but havent been able to find it again.
I have a plan for a loop layout in my shed starting with 2 modules making up a viaduct and eventually looping around to a yard on the other side. I am trying to keep it as close to a scale verion of the real life locations as possible but finding a yard that will fit in the length available and still be interesting to operate is a challenge.
Still, thats a while away yet as I will start off small with the viaduct and build that first. I like the idea of being able to show how small trains seem on a large viaduct and NZ120 will be great for being able to give the scenery and terrain the look of looming over the tiny trains.
