MPTT's Countryside Modules (10)

Built By: MPTT

Description: We have ten straight single modules with either cuttings or embankments and simple ground cover, which we've improved with trees and fence posts. (Line-side fence being a characteristic feature of railways in Britain.)

These modules were the built by the original club members when MPTT was founded in the Autumn term 2017. The modules have been maintained and improved by newer club members. Three of these modules were "retired" in Autumn term 2019 to release storage space for some of our Arizona desert modules.

The modules are constructed from Celotex insulation board on 18mm plywood planks, as described in the Unofficial T-Trak Handbook website. The insulation is covered with green paper towels soaked in diluted PVA glue. Ground covers and trees are from Woodland Scenics.

One of our retired modules visited NGS-W5TAG on 16th July 2022 for a small "T-Trak Meet". Once the bent fence posts were straightened out, the module still looks pretty good:
