This year NOCH has released a new set of platforms designed to be used with C-track from Trix and Märklin. This new set of platforms comes with an added height that brings them up to match the C-track height. This is a really nice product.
I ordered a pack of the NOCH platforms to check them out. They are very nice and comes painted right out of the box. The platforms are made from the same "hard foam" as the tunnel portals, rocks and walls from NOCH. They weigh absolutely nothing and are very sturdy. They are also easy to modify if you need to shorten them. [More]
Trix has announced a new adapter track that will help Fleischmann Profi-Track customers continue their hobby using the Trix C-track instead. [More]
I recently installed a couple of the larger radius curved turnouts on my layout. They look great and work absolutely fine, but when combined with rolling stock from other manufacturers than Märklin/Trix, they introduce an unexpected problem with bogie type wagons and coaches: Derailments. In this article I will explore the cause and explain you how to fix the problem. [More]
A fun addition to your Trix C Track turnouts are lighted lanterns. The prototype had them and you can have them too. In this article I will show you how to install them and how to light them up using the built-in turnout decoder instead of an external power source. That way you will have a true self-contained wireless turnout. [More]
