The town of Glennville is an old, generic heartland village located inside a railroad turn-around loop. Some of the town's buildings were crafted by master modeler Bill Clifford. Many of Bill's finely detailed dioramas were donated to the NEONS after his passing.
Description & History
This module was our first balloon module. Along with its mate, Lenord, the two modules make the red and blue lines a dogbone loop with the yellow line acting as a siding off the red line to serve industries inside each loop. With 14" radius curves, the module is not designed to handle 6-axle engines or long cars, but rather 4-axle engines and 40' - 50' cars.
