Bernd my layout is being built the same way, not because I want to take anything to a show (we don't have any shows close to here) but I want to be able to easily take it apart and put it back together if I should move. Also as you said you don't get overwhelmed trying to build everything at once. The Murphy portion I'm currently working on is my final section.

Great. One reason for taking to shows is I'd like to see TT scale become a viable scale to fill the gap between N and HO. Just like S scale fills the void between HO and O.

There's a couple of shows close by, plus I have a good friend that sells at shows. I usually share a table with him. It draws a crowd to his table when I bring something like an animated crane or just to display something.

Added another page showing how I'm going to make the turnouts for the engine terminal module.

Track laying has begun on the Logging Engine Terminal module.

Bernd,
I couldn't link to the article on TOMA you wrote about but it seems like a good concept. I guess you don't have to have everything planned out for all the modules but do you have a set position for tracks to enter and leave the modules or are they meant to be only set up one way? Looking good! Your machining and building skills are fantastic!
Cheers, Dave

Hi Dave,

Joe started the article in the E-zine last year. That would be a good place to start. He's putting the series on video and presenting it on TrainMasters TV. It costs to view, but there are articles written in the e-zine about it. Here's were he introduces the concept. BTW the E-zine is free. http://model-railroad-hobbyist.com/magazine/mrh-2015-10-oct/publishers-musings You can then follow the posts from this subject. You can search the e-zine by typing in "toma" (without quotes) in the search box on the upper right hand of the forum.

I think it's a great idea. You can plan a complete railroad that can be permanently built, but still be able to be taken apart and taken with you when you move. I'm looking at the possibility of set ups at shows.

And thank you for the kind words. They are appreciated.

Bernd
