Modular model railroading has become an important Special Interest Group (SIG) within ETE.
In 1977 Sacramento Chapter member Ken Blair and others pioneered the way for the specifications for modules. Without their inspiration, there would likely not be the interest you see today. In 1992 Bay Area member Dave Pryor spearheaded the drive for updated standards and modules. These are the standards followed by most chapter Module SIGs.
Within ETE there are currently several chapters with active Module SIGs. If you have an interest in becoming involved in this aspect of ETE please contact your chapter leadership.
These are the current ETE Module Specifications
