Everything from G to Z at the Winnipeg Model Railroad Club's November meeting

We had two wildly different sized models submitted for the club's monthly model display, held on Friday, November 18 at the Charleswood Legion. 

Gino Kost brought in a massive G gauge Burlington switcher. He installed a RailPro decoder and changed the incandescent bulbs to LEDs. He wired the battery powered lighting for track power and installed a speaker.

Richard Mikolayenko modelled a water tower and a coaling station in Z gauge, the smallest scale in model railroading. He hand painted all pieces of the water tower, and painted the water tank, the roof vents, and the trim of he coaling station. It was assembled and weathered with a mild black wash.

We couldn't resist posing the models together to emphasize the size difference. Those models Richard built could be used for a G gauge garden railway!
