Allright, i give up. i'm starting fresh, i'm thinking a layout of my home town and a few connecting small jerk water towns. here is a clip of the 1957 map, can 38 miles be fit into 38ft?? I'd like to do the stretch from my home town of Tisdale to the northern town of Nipawin. only problem is i may have to convert to CP rolling stock to be "authentic" , the end towns would be detailed, the little places may have a boxcar station and elevator... I think 1940-50 era. also see how the track bends at Nipawin and crosses the saskatchwan river, on one of the most unique bridges you'll ever see, allso there is a 500ft 100ft hight trestle just north of runciman, i have all the municipal maps showing rivers and the exact bends in the track. what do you all think? besides this line, i get to have the crossovers, and would like to hide a return track so i can make loops.
