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.

Arthur,
I am sure they are the same thing. I paid 4.95 per 100.

Very strong mini magnets. A nifty idea. Doc Tom

That'll improve operations a lot; definitely worth a few experiments
George D Posted - 05/27/2020 : 8:02:40 PM
Looks like a good solution.

George

Thanks all.

I have been doing a lot more work than I am posting. I am adding DCC keepalives to all my WW1 engines. Have built three more howitzers and might have finally solved the chopper coupler challenges.

I am experimenting with small magnets and have a 3d designer working on creating a coupler that hides the magnets in the face plates.

Here are proof of concept pictures and videos.

Wish me luck.

Good en!

Thanks Dave and Mike.

I have been working on stuff. This weekend I put DCC with keep alive in three petrol engines and started working on 7 more wagons and 3 Howitzers.

Here is a picture of one of the work in progress projects, a damaged d class wagon.




This is the reference picture:

Looks fantastic!
Cheers,

Larry, I am truly impressed with the quality of modeling and the attention to detail and accuracy. Well done! ~mike

Thanks all,

Jerry, I think Les is up to something that will top this.

Frank, I am going to have a backdrop but have not found a picture that works, so far. It may have to be painted.
