Well, I have to get to the fan to remove it. Placement and such are in the category of an "unrecognized design mistake" at the time the layout was built.You could just remove the fan and put an outlet cover over the box, probably wouldn't look as out of place as the neutered fan!
Well, when you put it that way, I see your point!Well, I have to get to the fan to remove it. Placement and such are in the category of an "unrecognized design mistake" at the time the layout was built.
I cannot stand on the layout. So removing it the fan means: removing the RR track and bridge over the lake (four hours min). Removing the lake (94" sheet of plywood) and putting it carefully in the far aisle (will take, probably, a day). Crawling under the layout with a ladder and setting it up in the pop up hatch where the lake was, I did this years ago, assuming i can figure out how once again), climbing up the ladder through the pop up hatch, removing the fan piece by piece and lowering it onto the floor through the pop up hatch below without dropping anything on the layout, covering it up with something like a plate or board. Then crawling down, removing the ladder, getting out from under the laoyut, putting the lake surface back (another full day), reinstalling the bridge and track and aligning them well again.
The fan just is not THAT ugly.
