Sign Board
One day a club member was grousing about the unfinished corners. It was quickly suggested that he turn his attention from talk to action! So, with the aid of a hand rasp, a few strokes here and there, the surface was sculptured so that it had a bit of relief to it. He then sprinkled on some ground cover, added some trees and presto, we now have a module with scenery. There are rumors that some dark and foggy night a cemetery might mysteriously appear here.
Description & History
When our sponsor, Challenger N-Scale Hobbies, moved to its current location we decided that we should assign some older modules to a semi-permanently store layout. Not having any spare corners, we chose to build a set of four smaller, 3' corners that would remain with the store layout. Because they would not be travelling, these modules had permanent legs rather than fold-up legs.
