Bend Track Organization and their long URL

nycrr8
 

John,

Thanks for setting this up this Y! Group.

Hi John and/or Geoff,

May I suggest adding the following link to our links page?

http://home.alltel.net/ah50902/index.htm

That rather long url is the home page for Bend Track.

Since a number of us have Bend Track modules and adapters for Bend to
N Trak, I think that the Bend Track web site would be a good one to
add. It has Bend Track specifications and some photos of Bend
Track.

Geoff, I don't know if you have pics of some of the older shows, but
it may be worth sending in some pics of the Bend Track end loops
(with adapters). They may add us to their website.

Regards,

John Henry

Hi Mark, Mike here, one of the best things about N-Trak is you can
model anything you wish. The scene you invision of Hogwarth's express
sounds interesting. Within N-Trak there are several variations of
specs you can adopt. If a long scene with single track is what you are
interested in there is a module type called One-Trak which sounds like
just what you need. Hey John! can you link us to N-Trak.org? there you
can find the specs for One-Trak along with all the other specs. I also
recommend you get the N-Trak newsletter so you can become better
informed as to what is. Mike

Greetings to John and the rest of the group members! I am Mark from
Colonie, and I am looking forward to learning a lot more about N-trak
and model railroading.

In my lifetime I have built (but never completed) one N scale layout.

That's it.

Period.

Space for a layout has always been an issue; and now that I have the
space, it is a very wet space, so we have been working for six years
to reduce the moisture in our basement.

For years I have waited for the opportunity to build the "Gulf Summit
Lines/Susquehanna Valley Railway" from the Atlas 'Nine N Scale
Railroads' book. Maybe one of these days...

My latest 'bug' has been to reproduce the Hogwarts Express (from the
Harry Potter series) in N scale. I'd love to put this together in
N-trak modules, from King's Cross Station to Hogsmead, including the
Glenfinnan Viaduct. This will likely require four or five separate
modules, and the rest of my life to complete! Of course, one of the
main challenges is that N-trak requires two mainlines and one branch
line, but the Hogwarts Express route was predominantly on a single
track. This is where picking the brains of those who have been
involved in N-trak for many years comes into play - you folks likely
know some tricks that I will never come up with on my own!

Well, that's my story. I'm sure this forum will be a lot of fun and
very informative for me.
