This module is based on the Burlington Northern's Intermodal Hub Center in Sprigfield,Missouri. The prototype for this facility has a single loading track, and was served by a Piggy Packer, which makes it perfect for a modeled facility.


The frames these modules are constructed on were built in 1989. The original scenery was removed in the late 1990s and the module was reconstructed from the plywood up.

The module has appeared in numerous shows, including the layouts at the NMRA National Train Show in St. Louis,MO (2001) and Cinncinnatti,OH (2005). The module is currently mothballed due to old wiring and a need for scenic refurbishment
