Sign Board
Lenard is a light industrial area with an abandoned mine and a few industries, one of which has rail service. The town is pronounced Len'-ard with the accent on the first sylable and is named after the module builder's father. The story goes that the builder's grandmother felt that the the name spelled Leonard should be pronounced Leon - ard, and since she wanted her son's name to be pronounced Len - ard, she should spell it phonetically to avoid confusion!

Note: This is not the town just southeast of Tulsa which is pronounced Lenard, but is spelled Leonard.

Are you confused yet?
Description & History
This module was our second balloon module. Along with its mate, Glennville, 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.
