Three years ago today – August 29, 2011 – I started blogging about my plans for an S scale model railway depicting the CNR branch line to Port Rowan, Ontario.
Over the past 1,000+ days, I’ve written hundreds of blog posts and – via a few thousand comments – you (and you, and also you) and I have exchanged many great ideas about my prototype, my model of it, CNR and steam-era railroading in general, the state of the hobby and more. Thank you, everyone, for being so interested, for being informative and entertaining, and for being respectful.
Rather than list a bunch of blogging stats here, I decided it would be more fun to drop some of the highlights into a video. So if you want to know more about how this blog is doing (and personally, I’m thrilled), enjoy this quick anniversary run as CNR mixed train M233 steams westbound to Port Rowan.

I’m looking forward to more great conversations in the year ahead!
