GRVS is primarily an N-scale club utilizing both the N-Trak and T-Trak standards. One of the
characteristics of the module standards we have chosen is that there are clubs all over the
world that build to the same standard. If we don’t have enough members who want to go to a
particular show to have our own complete layout, we can often find another club that will
welcome a few visiting modules to their layout. As a result, GRVS has friendly relations with
clubs from Ontario, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, and other states. At some shows multiple clubs
will combine their modules to make a single really big layout. This requires a good deal of
cooperative planning, but it works!
