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:

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.

Ted, Glad I could help.

I'm back from my first live showing. I did get a chance to try the Cannon train on a test layout.
For those on Facebook, I hope this link works.

Also I have ordered a resistance soldering unit. Moving on to some brass models that need attention.

Hi Larry, not sure if I mentioned to you in our last e-mail, I ordered figures from both of the companies you sent me'... ModelU 3-D are completely outstanding. QUick shipping and Alen, provides excellent service'.. S&D also, very good pewter, models. just a tad large in 1/43. But again very good service and fast shipping from England'...Thanks again for providing this fabulous information'.. Good luck with your presentation'..
BigLars Posted - 10/15/2019 : 6:45:43 PM
Kevin, I sent a new email with the product list.
Neil, I will keep you posted as to the reaction of the first showing.
Neil F Posted - 10/15/2019 : 1:59:32 PM
Hi kebmo,
I supplied Larry with the figures as Phill has problems sending to the USA it will be more expensive soon as your postage rates will go up soon. Write to PLM Cast-A-Ways, 12 New Street, Merryhill, Wolverhampton, West Midlands WV3 7NW UK He doesn't do the internet he has several ranges of 7mm (1:43 scale figures Catalogues from 1.50 + 60p p&p UK) and accessories all made out of white metal - so there heavy and cost a lot to post.

I hope this is of help

i never did receive your email.

Next Friday will be my first public showing of the concept for my Railroad.
I will not take any modules but will take a number of models, my Pizza layout, and the start of the video pieces of the layout.

I will be running at least two screens, one with a 300 page slide show, one with the movie "They shall not grow old" and possibly a third showing actual footage of WW1 trains running.

Here are two screens with display in a test mode.

Thanks Philip, I too need to build trees - they will be all destroyed so it will be a different experience than you are having.

Beautiful job painting the figures Larry. The corks are a great idea. How are you facing the figure to the corks'?

Thank you,
I torture each and every figure by drilling a hole in the foot / leg and glue in a piano wire peg. This allows me to temporarily attach them to a scene and move them about. It also keeps them in the corks.

And nice work painting those little guys.

Thanks Frank. No worries that I will run out of corks any time soon.
I have around 30 soldiers left to paint. I just got in 8 canon models and a second tank to build. They all white metal kits. I built 1.75 18 LB Canon today. They are very time consuming kits.
