The Canadian Association of Railway Modellers presents the 2013 Canadian Railway Convention "Bridges to the Future", in Port Hope ON, Canada.
The convention is being held at Trinity College School, 55 Deblaquire Street, North, Port Hope on August 9-11, 2013.
We are arranging to have some layouts open on Friday afternoon so people who are travelling from the east and the west may stop by to visit.
Friday night starts off with a Meet and Greet BBQ at the Port Hope Via Rail station. Clinics follow later at Trinity College School.
I've been laid up with a foot injury of late which has given me allot of time to spend cruising the internet. Having now discovered this forum, I thought I would invite everyone to view my personal blog about my Sn3 exhibition layouts and modeling adventures.

Thanks for your input. Darel
Noticed this along the BNML in Winnipeg:
I assume this is managed with a tractor.
I'm going to try and build 2 of these steeple cabs for me and a friend. Now I've searched the net and found every thing that has been put out there on these electric engines.
There were 7 of them built for the Niagara Junction Rwy., numbers 14 through 20. Pictures can be found here: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/locoList.aspx?mid=1200
I'm planning to be in Jasper Alberta very briefly next weekend (arrive 1600 Saturday on Via No2, leave 1430 Sunday for Vancouver on No 1). Anyone know of any interesting railfan sites within walking distance of the station?
This is a view of the Cadillac Motors plant from the railroad spurs that served it. Looks like an ideal background structure:
Hello all. I have attached a photo to this message in hopes that someone can enlighten me. The photo is on Swan Street in Jacksonville FL looking down the old ACL line that served industries in this area. Right in the middle of the picture between the switch points you can see a wooden deck of some type. I assume the device that enabled the conductor or the ground man to throw the points was under this deck. So does anyone know what it might have looked like and how it worked?
My professional travels will find me in Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins, CO for most of next week, flying in and out of Denver International. I'll have some spare time at different times during the trip, and so other then a return visit to Caboose Hobbies, I'm looking for railfanning opportunities.
OK - I can't remember who posted a picture on this website of a yard with a speaker, but I found my picture of an L&N yard with old #2500 sitting right next to a speaker. The photo gives you a nice closeup of the speaker unit.
