right time era. I used superglue to put it together and with some paint I think

Preperations for the Show in
Drammen 1-2october 2005!
Today all the tracks has been layed on the new module!
I am now making a new module so that I can expand my
layout with other zmod’s and future modules that I might make. The new module is
a T-module that only use the outer double track so that it will infact act as a
turn/end module for the ZMOD standard when I use all my “Needle Eye” modules
together on shows. I’m planning to make the new module so that it acts ass a
“block”? System. So that more that one train can safely travel on this layout
without crashing in to each other. This together with the two separate tracks on
my layout will increase the action censurably.
The next time I will show my layout will be at
“Modellmessen 2005” in Solberghallen, Drammen the 1-2nd off
“Bee there or be bee square”
