Something like this:

You mount the pin in one side and the sleeve in the other. This keeps the hole from enlarging over time.

Those are actually designed for locking removable table leaves into place.

What is the best practice to anchor a 2'X4' N scale module to the wall? Preferably without support legs but I am open to throwing them on there if need be.

My first thought was 3" x 3/8" lag bolts into the studs but I am open to other ways.
aschmr;

This file discusses the process, and includes a sketch of a section fastened to the wall with lag bolts as you suggest, and "knee braces", which are also lag bolted to the wall at their bottom end.

Good Luck & Have Fun;
