At this Friday's meeting, former WMRC President Ed Mulholland will give us a presentation on his N scale Cumbrian Mountain Lines layout, which is considered to be one of the finest model railroads ever built in Winnipeg. The presentation will feature prototype videos and slides of this layout, with Ed describing its construction and operation.
The layout replicated Britain's famous Settle & Carlisle Railway and Ed modelled the line in very fine and accurate detail. His layout was probably the world's most complete model of this historic line. Ed's layout was prominently featured in model railroad magazines in Britain and in North America, and was even showcased one morning on CBC radio. This layout has since been dismantled for another that Ed is currently working on. He will be giving us quick preview of that layout, too.
Our March 13 meeting starts at 7:30PM in the Tank Room of the Charleswood Legion at 6003 Roblin Boulevard. The Tank Room is located in basement of the Legion. Please enter on the west side of the building.
