About N Scale Modular Railroading

The building of a module is not difficult. Building a module has the distinct advantage of "forcing" the builder to do all the phases of layout building, without having to do so much of one phase that they get "fed up" with it, as can happen when building a large home layout. So often the scenery doesn't get built or the track work is never made to work right, or some other building phase is neglected. Getting a module ready for a scheduled meet will do wonders for a builders speed and concentration! Another advantage is that the module can be turned on its side or upside down, making working on it much easier, providing better lighting, and making it possible to avoid hot solder drips. The module can be brought to another part of the house where the rest of the family is, or taken outside when a smelly job needs doing. The small footprint also allows for experimentation with scenery techniques.

Detailed information about NTRAK and T-TRAK modules as well as publications of interest to N scaler is available throughout this website and for download and at the Store.  

Standards

NTRAK.org has created a document that covers all of the N Scale standards for modular railroading.  While the organization promotes all of the standards, involvement by NTRAK.org in each standard varies, based on a number of factors. More information including an introduction to each standard is available on our N Scale Modular Standards page.


Publications

NTRAK.org has been publishing documents for N scalers for well over 40 years. This includes the original NTRAK standards, the T-TRAK standards and more.  With the rise of electronic publishing, many documents are now being offered through Amazon in Kindle format.  A complete list of the documents is available at NTRAK.org Publications.
