Module Description:

This module is unique, because even when construction is finished, it will still not be complete.

It has been set up as a demonstration of scenery construction techniques used on model railroad modules, and on model railroads in general.

The progression is shown from a bare wood framework, through the shaping and painting of scenery materials, to a completed scene at the end. Even this "completed" scene could still use more details - things can always be a little better than they are already.

The large size of this corner (and all our original corners) made them (and makes them) inconvenient to transport to shows, so when we constructed our reversible corners, those were made smaller and lighter.

Wood framing supports the track and the light foam scenery.  Some of the early modules had more bracing than was necessary, making them heavier than the newer modules.
