Patrick's ( Trumptrain ) Team Track Tuesday series was one of my favorite stops on this forum. The weekly photos and stories served as a constant inspiration to get things done on my own railroad. TTT was always a great place to test ideas, think outside the box and work on the backstory behind my railway.
I would like to invite all of you to join me in contributing to this weekly series.
What is a Team Track?
Team Tracks are small siding or spur track for the use of local merchants, manufacturers, farmers, and other small businesses not directly served by a railroad. Because of their versatility, most types of freight cars can be on/offloaded at a team track. Even passenger train head-end equipment and railroad maintenance-of-way might occasionally be found on a team track.
What if I Don't Have a Team Track?
No worries, with just a little imagination, any stretch of track will do just fine. (My team track isn't even attached to my layout.)
1) Create a temporary scene along any stretch of your layout. 2) Take a picture to post here. 3) Clear the track and your railroad is back in action.
You can also just stop in to check out the other team tracks.
What if I don't have fancy scenery?
Every level of railroader is welcome on the Team Track.
Oh no, it's not Tuesday!
The Team Track is open 24/7. If you miss posting on Tuesday, no worries, post your photos on any day of the week! We'd love to see them!
