Welcome to our Franksville, Wisconsin modutrak module project page. This project series covers the construction of three N scale modular layout pieces that model a 1950’s prototype of Franksville, Wisconsin. With typical midwest scenery, you’ll find a variety of modular construction techniques, wiring practices using terminal blocks and Molex connectors, advanced scenery techniques utilizing static grass and other newer techniques and much more.
Part 1 : Introduction
An introduction to our project with background, diagrams and prototype photos.
Part 2 : Laying Spline Roadbed
We put down masonite spline for the roadbed that we will lay the tracks on top of.
Part 3 : Land Contours
Pink construction foam makes up the material we use to build the land forms on either side of the tracks.
Part 4 : Cork and Track
We put down some Midwest Products n-scale cork roadbed and Atlas Code 55 flex track.
Part 5 : Painting Track
Track is down and it is time to remove that nasty plastic shine.
Part 6 : Switch Machines and Wiring
We need controls and machines for those turnouts to function.
