August holiday railfanning on the M & M Sub. is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.



The first Monday in August is a holiday in most of Canada. It goes by different names in different provinces, and celebrates different things. But, at base, the main reason for the holiday is that our summers are short--we need all the long weekends we can get!

The day off was great for a bit of railfanning--like what I did on the CP Rail M & M Sub. One of the nice things about finishing a new scene is taking photos. Here are a few railfan shots of the new area that hides the hole on the upper level of the layout.
