Winter Valley Regional Railway in 1:29 Scale

Venture into Dave’s freelanced version of Alberta and watch the WVRR at work in the Winter Valley. The shortline is closely affiliated with the Canadian National, as its main line was once a CN branch. The railroad serves the farming and ranching communities across this beautifully scenicked large scale railroad. You’ll enjoy exploring the valley, which is full of Dave’s custom-built structures and picturesque scenes. The WVRR feature shares the story of the railroad, video of the trains in operation, and lots of full-page images of the WVRR (including leased CN motive power). The full movie includes video of the Canadian National locomotives as well.

Pacific Northwestern Railroading HO Scale

On Brett’s Pacific Northwestern Railroading layout, you’ll enjoy Canadian Pacific steam and diesel trains as well as some GN and BC Rail trains. The layout explores some of the beauty of the southern Canadian Rockies and a freelanced version of Fairhaven in Washington State. If you’re interested in alternative methods of building attractive landscapes, you’ll want to learn about Brett’s techniques. This feature includes a bit of the prototype history in some of the modeled areas, many photographs of the trains and the beautiful detail of the layout, and video of the railroads at work across the layout (with an emphasis on the Canadian Pacific).
