Greater Toronto Train Show 2019

Earlier this month I spent a Saturday with my good friends Chris Abbott and Mark Zagrodney at the annual Greater Toronto Train Show. A highlight for me was the opportunity to run a couple of Proto:48 models on an exhibition layout there. Click on the image, below, to read more on my Achievable Layouts blog…

CNR 3640 in RMC

RS18-Potrait

I’ve written a feature for Railroad Model Craftsman magazine about my model of CNR RS-18 3640 (shown above). This is an Overland brass import from many years ago, which I tuned so it would run better. I then made some basic cosmetic changes and added DCC, sound (with two speakers) and lights. I then painted the model – including creating my own masks for colour separation.

You can read about the model in the October, 2019 issue of RMC. Click on the cover to visit the RMC website:
