This blog documents the fun, frank frustrating, fanciful, and freaky construction of my N scale representation of the Canadian Pacific Railway’s Kootenay division from Creston to Midway, BC. It is mostly for heavy, long posts full of information, for tidbits I post to this tumblr: http://kootenaydivision.tumblr.com/
The N scale Kootenay Division is a 14×23′ 2-deck layout with a mainline run of 211 feet (6 miles) not including helixes and staging. It represents a prototype run of 196 miles. Included are the major towns of Creston, Nelson, Castlegar, Grand Forks, and Midway, as well as many scenic highlights in between. Three eras are represented, depending on mood and number of available operators: 1953, 1973, and 1984. It’s operated with an NCE DCC system, and is dispatched with Timetable and Train Order (TT&TO).
