This past weekend the Hot Springs Junction Ntrak module was used in Peninsula Ntrak's layout at the annual Thanksgiving train show held at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, California. This was the first time I had this module in the layout without the AsiaNrail layout also attached to it.
In this layout fellow Peninsula Ntrak member Joe Giacomini's American prototype 8 ft module set which also as the mountain division was next to the Hot Springs Junction giving us a total of 12 feet of mountain division track to run the 115 on.
For this layout, I mounted the control panel on the back of the module and this worked out just as planned. Between Joe and I we have a total of 18 feet of Ntrak modules with the mountain division track but no way to complete a turn around. We are discussing the possibility of using a portable automatic point to point system in the future. Perfect for double ended Japanese passenger trains.
One of the details I added recently is a fisherman on the bank of the river. He can been seen in this photo between the tree and the bridge.
