I must admit I was a bit worried…
Passenger cars in S scale are long. My CNR baggage-mail car is about 13 inches, while the CNR combines are a good 15 inches over the vestibules.
Given the space constraints we all face, I planned Port Rowan with a run-around long enough to hold the mixed train… but not much longer. And until I could actually place a full mixed train on the layout I was worried I would not have enough space.
Now that I have my combines, I’ve been able to assemble an S scale representation of the Port Rowan Mixed – and as this photo shows,it fits!
Well, that’s a relief – and a handsome, pike-sized passenger train, too!
