I’ve penned a feature on the layout for CN Lines – the excellent magazine produced by the Canadian National Railway Historical Association. It’s in Volume 16, Number 3, which arrived in my mailbox yesterday. If you’re here because you read my article then welcome! I hope you look around and find my blog interesting.
It was a real treat to do this piece, in part because I worked on it with my friend, the late Richard Chrysler. As the feature notes, Rich was building a free-mo compliant, modular version of Port Rowan in HO scale and liked to work on this project while at train shows so the public could see the layout under construction. I was able to capture a couple of photographs of Rich and his module at the 2012 Copetown Train Show, and these appear in the feature.
It was a pleasure working with the editorial team at CN Lines – thanks to co-editors Ian Cranstone and Kevin J. Holland, and to contributing editor and CNRHA Chairman Al Lill for making my layout look so good!
As well, thanks – again – to Robert Sandusky and Keith Sirman for the wonderful prototype images. Robert and Keith have been really generous, letting me use their photos for CN Lines and for my previous article on the layout in the Layout Design Journal, the quarterly publication of the LDSIG.
