The "Dust Bowl" days are now history and life has returned to normal in central Oklahoma. This farm scene shows new crops sprouting from the red, Oklahoma soil. The crops are being pollinated by several bee hives brought in especially for that purpose.
Description & History
As an junction transition module, Beucher Farm can function as part of the junction assembly or can serve as a stand alone 4' module. When used in the junction assembly, it is part of the spine between two loops and therefore should not have a skyboard. To provide that flexibility, the skyboard is hinged and has three bolts that hold it in position. When the bolts are removed, the skyboard folds back and down out of view. A special curved joiner track is required to connect the active side of the curved blue line to its junction module. Beucher Farm is named in memory of a deceased model railroader whose widow donated everything on his layout that the NEONS could salvage. The barn came from that layout.
