Description
Once again we learn that rail transport modeling is an international matter, especially when German model railroaders build a Canadian model railroad layout. Furthermore, the special feature of this model railroad layout is the rare scale, namely TT scale. The German railway enthusiasts Helmut Müller (father) and Michael Gruner (son) have created a beautiful model railroad layout of Canada. Their layout in TT scale focuses on the transcontinental railway traffic between Canada and the USA. The model railroad layout depicts the landscape around the “Connaught Tunnel” of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The stone galleries and wooden bridges, better known as trestle bridges, which are common for rail transport in the Rocky Mountains, were reproduced in great detail. For landscaping small stones and many natural materials from Woodland Scenics were used. The TT layout includes a saw mill, a large steel bridge, a port with ships and an industrial area. There are also locomotives, freight trains and passenger trains, which are wonderfully aged and weathered.
