HO SCALE: Cunningham's Gap (Single Station)

This is another design for a single station layout, and it was originally designed as two potable modules for a model railroading club. Back in the 1990s, I had been involved in a joint project with the club to develop some standards for their modular bench work system. The original standard called for 24-inch wide modules as a minimum, but that was eventually lowered to 18 inches.

Over the years, I had been asked to design a few 24-inch wide modules, but I think this was the first one I did that was only 18 inches wide. As a side note, this design was later incorporated in a home layout by another layout owner, and I will eventually be presenting that layout as well. For this version, I had to alter the track work slightly when I started the 3D work, since the original design had a few issues that become evident when viewing the 3D mock-up.
