PostSubject: Modules - the easy painless way to built a route!   Sat Nov 15, 2008 6:17 pm

Hello Everyone,.

Who here enjoys creating and making modules?!

Me, I like them... especially, since my Desert Layout is huge, creating modules and plugging them in later in my Desert Layout makes it easy for me to actually work on my route.

Many of you have seen my Airport Module, which will be plug into my Desert Route. Down the road I will post screen shots of my container freight module. Many of us have seen screen shots of the container themselves, already.

In a sense, it's like knocking two birds with one stone. I can easily upload the modules for everyone to enjoy, and still work in finish up my Desert Layout.

So, all this comes down to this....

What Module idea can you offer ... If it's suitable I can easily create it and plug it into my layout, if it makes sense!

Modules will do:
Race track
Horse track

BTW. I have created all of the necessary pieces for such modules!!

Do you have a good mining module? A lot of good railroad action happens at the mines.

Hi Ishie, (Matey LOL),

How about some dockyard modules, there are a couple on the DS, but, a few more wouldn't be a waste.

Cheers
Pete.

Nice one Ishie.

Logging off for a while, my family has just turned up to celebrate my 60th.

There were times I didn't think I'd make it cheers . I know a joke about being 60, but if I put it here or on any Forum, I'll probably be banned for life. Smile

Cheers
Pete.

Off Topic::::

Thanks Guys. Birthday bash went well, loads of pressie's including a walking frame, bath chair, hearing aid, stair lift and the old pipe and slippers Laughing . Only kidding.
My youngest managed to get in a telephone call in from Afghanistan which brought a lump into my throat.
Glad to report he's well, although two of his fellow commandos were KIA. My thoughts go out to their families.
Sort of brings what our lads are going through a little closer to home.
My apologies for ending on such a sour note.
Thanks again
All the very best
Pete.

Glad to hear you had a good day Pete, good your son was able to get thru!

Back to topic>>>
I wonder if a steam engine museum could be made into a module to place into a modern route, I know you mentioned a museum on your new route Ish....

Sometimes they use old loco maint. facilities, one near me still has a few tracks outside (scary but still there affraid )
Twice a year one such place uses a 44tonner to pull a CN Hudson outside for pictures and to make room for model train vendors inside.

Just thought I would share...... lol!

Cheers,

Lorin

Hi Lorin,

Wow ... you still remember that ....

Actually i have not made that section up yet ... so I'll might make it into a module -- my idea to make a huge glass building in gmax .... big enough so people can place small sections of tracks and place any steamer they like inside, so from the outside it looks like a steamer museum -- to keep the effect of the 1800s era a fence will surround the facility, and I can put western style stores and even horses around the facility ...

you have seen my horse track ... in the desert route I will put that behind or somewhere near the museum!!

Hey All,

I've created enough casino type of buildings, etc ... so, the casino module will also be created. i was going to built it anyhow, into desert industrial route, but I'll stand-alone, upload to Auran, and then plug into the Desert!!

BTW. Jan made on my request lots of desert plants a while back guys... so you know!!
