Ingraham, Paul


Paul has been involved with modular railway modeling since 1974 when he built an Nn3 NTRAK module for the NMRA national convention in San Diego. He subsequently became the first Modular Standards Chairman on the NMRA national engineering committee and modular layout coordinator for the 1977 PCR and 1981 National conventions.
Paul developed the Interail modular standards that pioneered ideas now embraced by Freemo, One Trak and the European NEM modular recommendations.
Always having international railway interests, Paul has built layouts with Swiss, British, and Canadian themes as well as his current AsiaNRail modules.
For over 20 years, Paul was the owner of Interail/Intermodel and designed and manufactured the first N scale double stack container cars and related intermodal models in the 1970s to 90s.

Clinics Presented:

Micro Macro Modularity: using the modular concept in layout design


Integrating the modular concept with other layout design tools allows modelers to create prototypical layouts that can evolve for a lifetime. It helps focus the modeler's attention on the essential functions of a railway. Applying the concept to internal elements on the layout further enhances the concept. It is the best combination of practicality and value for money for today's mobile lifestyle.

Modeling Asian Railways in N scale


Asian railways are more than bullet trains! See model temples, rice paddies, a Taiwan branchline. Locate equipment you can adapt for that Korean or Thai railway you've always craved! Whatever your prototype or scale, you're sure to gain insight into finding sources for the unusual. Be sure to visit the LD/OPSIG room to see the AsiaNRail modular layout that accompanies this clinic presentation!
