The Christmas Train Show - Part 4 - Grand Tour

Click on each image for a closer look!
Continuing on our tour of the Christmas Train Show, we see in Image #1 at the upper left one of the many fine layouts which were brought to the show by model railway enthusiasts for the public's enjoyment. In Image #2, we see a almost completed model of a bridge on the the Canada Southern Railway. This layout is modeled after a major railway which used to cross southern Ontario. Image #3 captures the fun that youngsters had with a small electrically driven Thomas the Tank Engine on a small loop of track.
In picture #4, we find Rod Clarke, the author of the book "Narrow Gauge Through The Bush", a definitive history of the first pioneering narrow gauge railways in North America which ran northward from Toronto in the 1800's. He was both selling his book and displaying models he had created of the rolling stock of these railways. Image #5 captures an innovative railway themed product which I had not seen before - a train set integrated with a Monopoly set! Image #6 captures a display by the Track Motor Cars of Ontario group, a group of enthusiasts who restore and operate vintage motor cars and speeders.
