The module includes two big houses and the main terminal station with passenger and freight terminals within the area. There are two warehouses (light green), retail outlets and other simila buildings (pink), a station building (yellow) and habitation (orange). Under the crater hillside there is a fiddle yard which will be accessed by either making part of the hillside removable or adding a backing board so uncovering a part of the tracks for access.

Note that the terrain surface color on the 3D images above is edited to match the color of the ground on Mars while the default terrain color in SCARM is green.
