The Gateway Western landscaping shows impressive progress

It was the last Tuesday Gateway night before the New Year, so we put the scenery supplies and track laying equipment away and decided to run some trains. The Gateway is progressing nicely and the final bit of track work on the upper yard is ready to install. The scenery on the mountain area is progressing and the town scene is about ready to begin taking shape.

The Winnipeg Model Railroad Club's HO scale Gateway Western Railway is located in the Winnipeg Railway Museum in the VIA station, 123 Main street, at The Forks.

 Gary Stempnick's CN Budd car runs a short haul passenger service around the layout.

 The rugged Canadian Shield mountains contain lots of wildlife including this black bear who has just come out of his cave.

 WMRC President Larry Leavens tunes-up a locomotive at the work bench.

 A CP steamer runs the route around the mountain.
