More progress on the Gateway Western!

    WMRC member Ian Plett took these images of a recent session at the Gateway Western Railway, located in its own structure inside the Winnipeg Railway Museum. As you can see, significant progress is being made on what is going to be the most spectacular model railway in the city!

     The Winnipeg Railway Museum is located on the second level of the Via Rail Station at 123 Main Street. Tuesday Nights are always Gateway nights! That's when the gang gets together around 7:00PM for some modelling, train running, and some good old camaraderie!
   Morgan Turney, completely undisturbed by the pair chatting behind him, concentrates fully on the modelling project at hand. The man is in the zone!


  1. Thanks for more pictures of the railroad!
    Any chance a track plan might be part of a future blog entry?
    And possibly a description of how the railroad operates, whether mainly as a working display, which is understandable of course, or as an operating session oriented layout for members to run like the prototype?

    Thanks again, it looks great!

  2. Those are some great ideas! We did post the track plan some time ago, but we can post it again! If you scroll down to "post this blog" on this page and type in "Gateway Western" You'll find lots of posts about this great model railway!
