If you are a regular follower of the blog, you will have seen pictures from my modular layout. Both the C track articles and some of the landscaping articles feature stuff from the construction of the layout. Here are some pictures from the layout as it currently looks. [More]
I like to build, rebuild, break down, set up, build again, and again and rebuild and so it goes. In other words: I need a track system that is easy to use and easy to set up and take down.

Trix C track is built for 2-rail operation and comes complete with support for RP25 wheel sets and powered frogs. [More]
