Racetrack

Description

The racetrack module was built by Eric Meyer.  It features a six-foot long central section to showcase a large N scale race track.  The racing cars are pulled around the track by magnets; there is a magnet mounted under each car and a matching magnet mounted on the top of a locomotive that runs on Kato Unitrack under the race track pavement.

There have been a few iterations of this module set over the years.
