GRVS T-TRAK

GRVS is venturing into T-Trak.

For information on T-Trak, visit the T-Trak website at: www.t-trak.org

Sometimes, kids have a tough time with N-Trak.  The top of the layout is at or above the eye level of most kids.  The module size is intimidating, and in a lot of cases, is prohibitive to transport.  The complexity of the module structure and wiring make it difficult for young people as well.  T-Trak is small, light weight, easy to transport and handle, easy to build, and has no wiring.  And, because it is small, there is a lot less scenery to work on.  The setup of T-Trak is at table-top level - which is more inviting to kids too.

GRVS is going to try our hand at T-Trak in an effort to involve more kids in the hobby.

The following is a list of GRVS members who have a T-Trak module or two (or more).
