N SCALE: Single Station Free-MoN Module

A member of the Micro/Small Model RR Layouts group asked me to design a 2'x8' Free-MoN module that included an industrial switching district, and he also wanted to be able to operate the module as a stand-alone switching layout. Although I show a backdrop, the module doesn't have one, and can be operated from either side. The owner wanted industries that would support a variety of rolling stock, and also had a few structures all ready built that he wanted to include. The layout was set in the eastern US and was meant to represent any era from the mid-1950's to the modern era by swapping out automobiles and rolling stock.

The track plan:
