    Introducing the N scale Thompson River Canyon Layout

    On Oct. 14, last year, my brother-in-law died. Before he died, he started collecting N scale trains. His plan was to make a layout of his favourite railfan location, the Thompson River Canyon in B.C. Since he died before he could make it, I decided to make a small portable layout of that...

    Layout in a crawl space
