Sign Board
Just like an unruly child, sometimes a module acts up and fails to perform properly. When this happens, the module is sent to TIME OUT while its problems are addressed and corrective measures are taken. In the interim, this temporary replacement unit is used to fill the gap.
Description & History
Our 4' bridge module is only 12" deep, with two 12" folding sheets that function as the back half of the module and the skyboard. When opened, it appears like a normal module since all the hinges are hidden. The module has no legs and is clamped into position between two other modules. It is not normally scheduled as a part of the layout. The scenery is simply grass and shrubs. If one of our modules has an electrical or track problem that we can't fix, we can pull that module and replace it with this one.
