Just like the fabled village of Brigadoon, this town appears out of the mist one day every 100 years. This ain't the year!
Description & History
This module is a dual purpose unit that provides an N-Trak module for me and a self-contained loop on which my grandkids can run trains. In order to do both the loop goes up and over the N-Trak lines and is powered independently. When in stand-alone mode, the three N-Trak tracks function as an interchange yard. As my grandkids grow and develop an interest in model railroading, we will build sidings and industries together to flush out the module's scenery.

The module extends beyond the standard 24" N-Trak depth by 2" to the front and 6" to the rear. This allows sufficient room for a loop with 15" radius curves.
