N Scale Modular - Bob's Blue Circle Pickles and Branstone Cement Works

The Bob's Pickles logo

The Bob's Blue Circle Pickles and Branstone Cement Works complex, known as "Bob's Pickles" for brevity, as a large double module, measuring a total of 8' by 2'. It is unusual, in that the module to the west joins to the "front" and that to the east joins to the "back" thus:

This enables the tracks to deviate even more from a straight run than normal and is very visually appealing, especially as a long train snakes through.

As well as Bob's Blue Circle Pickles and Branstone Cement, there is Dunno-Watt Inc, King's Scrapyard and a small passenger stop. Spanning from one end of the module to the other is an overhead electric "inter-urban" shuttle service which runs a regular schedule between communities at the extremities of the modules.
