About This Site
This site was created to help myself and others that are interested in the Canadian Pacific Railway and making scale models that are representative of the prototype.
I have been a model railroader for most of my life. I believe that model railroading is one of the most rewarding hobbies that a person can pursue. Each of my modeling efforts has been better than the last and I know I have a long way to go. I am constantly trying to improve my skills as a modeler and a researcher. Many of my closest friendships in life have been the result of my involvement in the hobby and I hope to continue to make new and interesting friends.
I am 36 years old and I live in Argyle, New Brunswick with my large family. We have 5 children ranging in age from 2 to 17. I work in the IT field and find that model railroading is something that helps me relax and allows me a creative outlet. The whole family appreciates the hobby and is very supportive of my involvement.
The layout I am planning will be set in the late 1960s. This allows a variety of equipment to be run with several different schemes ranging from the block lettering scheme to the CPRail scheme. I am a fan of all of CPs paint schemes (except for that dreaded dual flags) so anything from early block to golden beaver will be run. While I won't restrict myself when it comes to running trains for show or fun, when the layout is in true operations mode it will be run with era specific equipment only. I have only a slight interest in steam and own a few steam locos. This also will be reserved for showing off the layout for visitors and for just plain fun.
