Primarily I'm thinking of building a modular system not to add modules to a larger project, but simply as a convenient way of building something within my constraints. It seems like it would make sense to follow some kind of defined standard though, so I could contribute them to a larger setup at some point, and just to ensure consistency.
It seems like there is a wide range of standards though! As far as I can discover through Google, the two primary standards are:
- NTRAK (American)
- FREMO-N (European) Range of FREMO Standards
The FREMO standards seem better documented (although primarily in German) and more "open". End profiles, for example are freely available: www.finescale.org . The profiles also appear to be available "off the shelf" in laser cut ply for a reasonable EUR10-11 (plus an unknown amount for postage!) Harald Brosch
Does anyone have experience of using either of these standards though? I am leaning toward the FREMO standard, but would I be out on a limb using it in the UK? Have I missed out any other standards?
