Lightning the load

Well ,it’s been decided to rebuilt my Randolph Maine modules that are part of the Sn2 Crew fre-mo group. While the old modules look great, [see my column in 1:64 modeling guide and Lee Raineys article in the fall/winter 2012 Sn3 Modeler]the fact of the matter is they weigh a ton. I also did a lousy job on cutting the gaps in several of the turnouts before I started doing it the Fast Tracks way with a coping saw. Frank Knight of the Sn2 Crew has devolped a light weight system that has the strength needed for modules while still being rugged enough to handle the rigors encounted from being hauled around the country. My goal is to have the new modules ready for the Amherst Show setup in January in  West Springfield Mass. Stay tuned for more updates as work progresses. In the meantime heres some shots of the coal dock for your perusal.
