Rusty Rails is in Milford, MA and has light weight modules, a complete circle plus a pair of straight 4 footers.
Power is the 27mhz Aristo TE.
We use these at our winter meets, but no one has a way to easily transport these modules.

Live steam is messy and the styrofoam used in the rusty rail modules would not hold up.
Inner City has wood modules, but the oil from running steam would make the plywood messy long term, therefore they would most likely refrain from running live steam.

Also, track powered trains do not like the oil film on live steam track, acts like very dirty track.

The Rusty rail modules match the Inner City and New Hampshire modules, track spacing and wiring.

Note that the straight sections really are not 4 foot long, but 1200mm as everyone used the LGB 1200mm track sections.
These measure approx. 47 1/4 inches long and are often called 4 foot.

A note on module building!!

As a general rule, straight modules are made in pairs as an even amount is needed for setting up the modules.

Curved sections are matched 90 degree units and are always used in pairs since they usually only line up perfectly where they meet straight sections. Ours have custom bent curves.
