About Me or What I Like Most About T-TRAK

I live in suburban Columbia, Maryland. I started T-Trak after I saw what Steve Jackson had set up at the Capital Limited in 04. I'm also an Ntraker and do both types of set ups. At this point I have approx 55 modules, singles, doubles, inside and outside corners, and two junctions. The first time I did a set up was with Steve at the Timonium Fairgrounds Cow Palace. It was a succesfull show. Jim and Lee Fitsgerald were there in attendance and Lee came over to our T-Trak layout and was very impressed. Since then Steve and I did many shows together with other members of the club. I have power drops on some of my modules and UP5's on five of them. For power I use a MRC TechII for DC on the Mt Line and the inside track and the Digitrax Zephyr for DCC on the out side track. For me T-Trak is great because I can do so many scenes that I can't do in Ntrak. I've been a Model Railroader for over 55 years, since I received my first train set in 1946 when my dad returned from WWII. that was an American Flyer S Scale. I've also done HO but my favorite is N-Scale.

GP30 is a custom job made into
Slug with all the doors removed and painted
CSX Gray. It really has a working motor in it.

This is a LIFE LIKE GP-38 that was being used as a dummy and still is. But now it's more than a dummy, it sits on a siding and is being worked on by the mechanics. The idea of putting a prime mover in it came from a picture I found in one of the Trains magazines of a Delaware & Hudson C628 with the hood removed and the prime mover exposed. The bottom picture is the same engine facing the opposite direction with two mechanics and the prime mover weathered.
