Cheakamus Canyon new Model Railway layout construction

Hi All

When Rapido produced their BCR C40-8Ms in HO I knew I was in trouble.

I had said to Dave and Roger if they (anyone) makes a model of the BCR C40-8M then I will build a BCR layout, so I was stuck! Four Rapido Dash 8s arrived in the mail and I was sunk!

After a bit of discussion and pouring over the JF Garden book, we came up with the location of Cheakamus Canyon on the BCR mainline.

Here are some videos of the current build process.

Day one.

Day 2

Day 3

Day 3.5

Should be a great model once Dave does his rock magic!!

Enjoy... Scott
