Great layout!


At the recent Mount Cheam Lions annual Model Train and Hobby Show, out in Chillwack, BC, the Salmon Arm Model Railroad Association won the People's Choice Award and the Best Club layout award for their beautiful HO layout - again!

This magnificent layout has a wealth of detail and must surely be one of the finest examples of the art in BC.

As a tribute the fine modellers of Salmon Arm, here are a few images of their work which demonstrate their care, skill and passion for the hobby.

The occasion? The Vancouver TraiNgang's annual barbeque, which this year also marked the club's 25th year.

These lads may be very good with trains, but fortunately the 'gang' has friends who can bake - thanks to Joanne Peterson for baking up a storm with this delicious train feast!
