York Railway Moldellers

This Sunday past with my buddy Trevor Marshall in tow, I took my 2 nephews to visit the York Railway Modellers layout.
1600 sq ft of some of the finest modeling one can hope for.

The layout is a freelance design based upon locations in South Western Ontario, with both CN and CP trains well represented.
The freight car fleets are, for the most part, very accurate models of what one would expect to see on prototype inspired layout. Lot's of 40' Canadian boxcars with the unique roofs, ends and ladders. The steam fleet draws heavily upon brass imports, something that Canadian Modelers were blessed with for a time.
The scenery in the "completed" areas is skillfully done, as are the many kitbashed and scratchbuilt structures.
This is indeed the kind of layout you would want to take a neophyte to, in order to demonstrate what is possible within the hobby.
Well done to my friends at the club.

Thank you for the kind words Pierre, great to see you at the club.
We have to get one of your Plywood cars in the club fleet!
See you at Springfield!
