    Hi friends
    would any of you fine modellers by chance be modelling the K & S Railway, BC CANADA. I am just building the Sandon station and I am trying to find out what colour this station would have been painted in the 1890's I have the Skyline Limited book, but it doesn't give that info. thanks

    Kaslo and Slocan RR

    The railway station would have been a redish brown. I too am modelling the K&S.

    So tell us a little about this K&S RR..................ive read about a few of the old canadian Narrow gauge roads, mostly on Vancouver island.

    I'm interested in many differant roads from a historical standpoint.
    history is kind of a secondary hobby with me. I find it fascinating :)

    K&s Rr

    The Kaslo and Slocan RR was operated on 3 foot track at 45 lbs a yard. It had stub switches. It had Three locomotives, two 2-6-0's and a 2-8-0 inside frame. One snow plow purchased from the rio grande southern. But that is all in the book. The mountanous terrain it was in is georgeous and I recommend anyone modelling the railway go visit the area. What particulars would you like to know?
