NTRAK Standards and Recommended Practices

A Listing of NTRAK Standards and Recommended Practices

Electrical Standards for new and upgraded NTRAK modules, especially those that will be part of a DCC-controlled layout.

Additional requirements for Club and Member owned modules beyond those in the NTRAK manual.

Requirements, procedure and check lists for certification and grading of Club and Member owned NTRAK modules.

Recommended wiring practices for 120VAC for NTRAK layouts, meeting electrical and fire codes.

Guidelines and procedures for a successful NRMRC Train Show with the NTRAK layout.

Form 19 is used to communicate to layout operators any changes to the normal Show Operating Procedures, usually due to local conditions at the show venue.

Common courtesy and respect in dealing with Members and the public, and in the handling of property belonging to Members and the public is important to the well-being and ongoing harmonious development of the Club. Courtesy and respect are especially important during periods of stress, such as during train show set-up, tear down and operations, and when visiting Members and other modelers at their homes.

What you should do to prepare your module(s), locomotives and rolling stock, and your DCC throttles before bringing them to a train show

This publication sets forth standards, recommended practices and procedures for N Scale model railroading equipment operated on the North Raleigh Railroad and other layouts in which the North Raleigh Model Railroad Club participates.

Since the intent of operations at Train Shows is to run trains in an orderly, professional manner, the smooth operation of trains is of high priority, and thus smooth running locomotives are highly important to achieving this purpose. This publication lists locomotives acceptable for use at Shows.
