For my next Railroad I want to replicate some of the activities of the Corps of Canadian Railway Troops in Europe 1918.

At the height of World War 1 the Corps of Canadian Railway Troops contained 19,000 personnel - 16,000 working in France and Belgium, with the remainder in England.

Canadian railway soldiers constructed all light railways in areas occupied by the five British Armies, and 60 % of the standard gauge lines connecting the channel ports to the front lines. In total, Canadians built 1169 miles of broad gauge railway line and miles of narrow gauge line during their wartime service. That is some serious Narrow Gauge railroad to model.

For some partial information you can go to this link:
http://guysboroughgreatwarveterans.blogspot.com/2013/02/canadian-railway-troops.html

I will be modeling using 1/43 and 1/48 in forced perspective. Track will be Code 70 set at 16.5 mm. It should be 14mm but I need to use available drive units from HO models. Therefore the closest fit is ON30.

I have been building a few models for the past 6 months. Now it is time to get serious.

Let the games begin.

Larry, every time I check out your thread, I'm blown away by the level of detail and by the level of modeling being displayed!
Keep this up and you will be promoted to a 4 star modeller!

What an interesting photo of the hospital train.The dressing station is quite ornate looking. Thank you for posting this historical medical detail.

You certainly have an excellent "eye" for modeling and superb modeling too, Larry. I have enjoyed viewing your builds here.

Also look out for this build of the Hospital cars soon. I have ordered the raw materials.

BigLars Posted - 06/03/2020 : 6:42:05 PM
Thanks for the kind words Arthur, Frank, Carl and Mike. Off to order some decoders and more 20 HP Simplex Locomotives.
Michael Hohn Posted - 06/03/2020 : 10:45:51 AM
I like the impressive range of models you’re building for this project. It all looks so realistic, too.

Just excellent work here!
Frank Palmer Posted - 06/03/2020 : 08:54:52 AM

Larry, the camo job on the guns is fantastic.

Larry, sorry to hear about Adrian. His models look detailed and well done. This is such an interesting niche you are modeling.
BigLars Posted - 06/02/2020 : 10:01:10 PM
Thanks Mike, Jerry, Dave and George.
Two hours work on this project today. I am at a fully operational (on clean track) DC version of a 20 HP Simplex Petrol engine. I have ordered new gears, DCC decoder and Keep alive to try to make it flawless. I am also ordering a few more of these 3D printed units to play with.


Tyson Rayles Posted - 06/02/2020 : 07:33:51 AM
Excellent modeling! Sorry to hear about Adrian.
BigLars Posted - 06/01/2020 : 5:15:49 PM
I learned today that Adrian Swain from Wrightlines passed away last Friday. Many of the Locomotives and Wagons you see in this thread are white metal kits produced by Adrian. He was one of the main reasons I could get this project off the ground. rest in piece Adrian - rest assured I will finish all the kits you sold me.

Always so enjoyable to see your incredible modeling and creativity. Thanks for sharing.

Good looking artillery pieces, Larry. As you said, they do need mud.
