Upcoming Train Shows & Events

Recent Show Reports

The North Raleigh Model Railroad Club held a T-Trak show on February 3, 2018 at the Galloway Ridge Retirement Community, with 13 members in attendance. Set-up began at 8am and was completed at 9:45am, with trains running by the time of the show’s scheduled opening at 10am. The show was well-attended, with both residents and guests of Galloway Ridge as well as the neighboring Fearrington Village community.

The North Raleigh Model Railroad Club attended the 2018 Worlds Greatest Hobby On Tour Show in Charlotte, NC where we setup and operated both a T-TRAK layout in co-operation with KATO USA and a combined Eastern N Lines NTRAK layout with the Central Carolina N Scalers and the Lynchburg Area N-Scalers.

Module Updates

Here's a update on the two corners: Track improvements are finished and ballasted and now have red to orange and orange to red on each corner. Some poorly done track work has been repaired.

I arrived at Joe's 7:15 AM and we proceeded to test the Gray Rock's Orange and Red lines including the Frog Juicer. As soon as we hit it with track power...short!

The orange line improvements on Gray Rock  are now complete. Work involved installing two turnouts from the Red line crossing over to the Orange line. These two manual turnouts are finger operated. The flexibility this will give us is tremendous!

Cork has been laid on both corners and track work has begun...which came too an abrupt stop when I had a senior moment!
