See Dennis Rietz's crawlspace layout on Train Town on Shaw TV

Dennis Rietze (left) explains the challenges of building a layout in a crawl space to Glenn Klaeesn during a recent layout hop organized by the Winnipeg Model Railroad Club.

Shaw TV's second Train Town episode features our own Dennis Rietze's layout in a crawl space. The five and a half minute long video is available to Shaw subscribers and also on You Tube.

The showcasing of his layout is a bittersweet moment for Dennis and the WMRC, as he and his wife LuElla will be moving soon, and the layout will have to be dismantled.

The next episode of Train Town will be shot at the WMRC's annual spring open house, which will be held April 1st and 2nd at the Charleswood Legion, 6003 Roblin Boulevard. Hours are from 11:00AM to 4:00PM for both days. Admission is by donation, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to St. Amant.
