SummitMike NelsonA nine module turning loop with a 13 foot diameter. The track was recently rebuilt to a five track staging yard and the modules were re-sceniced. The loop is comprised of 4 straight modules and four modules with 45 degree angles at the ends. The length of the straight modules was chosen to fit the trailer Mike uses to haul the modules. The track interfaces of the modules require that the loop be kept together as a set.
Turnout control on the main and sidings will be Lameco switch motors controlled by a DS54 stationary decoder as well a toggle mounted in a recessed opening in the facia. Mike uses hinges to line the modules together as well as a unique hinge system for the legs of the straight modules.

WashSterling Moore/Wasatch Free-moThis is a 45 degree corner built to Jim Moore’s plan. Jim Moore built the framework and Adam Eastman built the remainder of the module. It features a single track mainline running thought scenery. The mainline passes over two culverts an through a deep cut. The scenery is made using “Glue Shell.” Traditional cardboard strips were covered with cheesecloth. Blue shop towels (paper) were then dipped in a dilluted white glue mixtures and laid over the cheesecloth. The method produced a strong and light scenery base that Adam covered using traditional methods. The module has been owned by Adam, Blaine Hadfield and Sterling Moore.
