Hi all N Scalers,
As a relative newbie I have a greater need to understand what actually works for my fellow modellers so that for selfish reasons, if for nothing else, I can put that first hand advice into a practical lesson such that I then have a better chance of producing an acceptable outcome - be it one that I am happy with and / or preferably others as well. Thinking long term it should help me pass that / those lessons on to others.
As yet I do not have a working layout although I do have ( and have posted) a starter for ten. What I do want to do before I go any further forward is to understand the current options for N Scale Modules currently being used by members / groups within the NMRA(BR) so (as far as reasonably practicable) I can choose to adopt (or not) the module format that seems "the best" for me going forward. The reason for doing so is that I want to be able to be part of a wider group as well as being able to "play" on my own - the best of both worlds.
Why do it here rather than telephone or email individuals? - simply, one post ought to reap a better return and all get to see it at the point of issue. I'd rather not resort to chasing individuals but in the search for truth!!!
I have gratefully received a copy of the latest "standard" being used by the Black Diamonds group via Steve Dennison but feel sure there are others out there especially because that "standard" states that adapter modules are / maybe available (a reasonable assumption?).
So a call to arms (as they say) for all N Scalers to offer up what they do in working within a "module" format and / or a format of their own when working within the scale.
It would be preferable if the responses are kept within this post however I'm open to receipt through my email (firstname.lastname@example.org
) - if you take that route can you also include a note to state whether you are happy for me to post the info back here.
I really look forward to your responses and thank you in anticipation.
