Railroad Modelling in N Scale
- N scale is a great scale to build wide expanses of scenery for realistic Model Railroad operations and to operate longer trains than HO scale or the larger scales. Excellent scale model locos are available providing smooth and reliable operation, with outstanding detail and finish.
- N scale began modeller in Europe and later USA. Looking for a chance to operate large trains in wide expanses of scenery N Scale, much smaller than HO, gives the modeller lots of choice. The development of a modular standard NTrak for the layout module sections has led to exhibitions of the combined efforts of many modellers. Long trains look great.
- NTrak standards ensure that modules, built by clubs or individuals, can be transported to shows or conventions and combined into large layout.
|- West-N-Trak uses the concepts of N-Trak adapted to Western Australian needs. Model railroaders in N scale have developed this variant of the American NTRAK module. More detail on these standards below. West-N-Trakand NTRAK AUSTRALIA|
