Winnipeg's model railroad and rail fan community mourns passing of Gord Hilderman

Former WMRC member Gord Hilderman lost his battle with cancer on May 22. He would've been 61 in June. 

Gord was a CN engineer, photographer, model railroader, model train dealer, and the brains behind He regularly kept us all up to date with the goings on inside the real railroad industry and the railfan and modelling communities in western Canada. He was also a member for the Selkirk Model Railroaders Association. 

Gord, like his Dad, loved trains and was an avid railroader. In his early years Gord worked briefly as an automotive mechanic and a tow truck operator. He then followed his Dad’s footsteps and joined CN, where he worked for 33 years starting as a yard foreman, then as a conductor and finally as a locomotive engineer.
