    I don't know if there were molds for the John Rendall original. As far as I know, all his kits were wood "Craftsman" style, but had a bit of a bad rep for fuzzy pine strip wood. The plans would be cool to have though.

    This site has a scratchbuilt version of the Orangeville witches' hat (witch's hat?) as part of an almost scale version of the entire CPR yard in Orangeville:

    Yes, I am impressed, and he apparently is undergoing renovations to expand :eek: :D I am especially interested, as I used to cross that yard at least twice a day going to public school in the '70s.

    Richard is not too far from you - Mississauga. He has operational open houses from time to time. It would just be a short hop for you from T.O. Keep an eye on the web site, as he sometimes announces the dates there.
