    Dav and I go back a long way , He was the one I have to thank for opening my eyes to the beauty of traction modelling:thumb:

    Dave and his dear wive Alice moved out of Toronto to Brighton 3 years ago for a quiter way of life. Good for them:thumb: But they are busy :D

    We had a great ride round the area and lunch.

    Dave classes his layout more of a museum, and has a lot of areas for running all sorts of traction stuff.

    And to finish off here is some of Davids scratch built models and bought ones.
    Also a shot of the Montreal / Windsor express, the real thing.

    That looks like a nice, manageable layout. I love the second photo - looking through the forest of poles! All in all it looks like a neat setup.

    LOL, chris, why is the cut down doodlebug familiar to me!

    My version is probably slightly shorter and a full freight version but its amazing to see someone else having practically the same idea!
