A Thamesiders branch line standard module by Patrick Grace

This module is HO scale and represents a fictional branch line station in the Canadian prairies operated jointly by Canadian National and Canadian Pacific.

The module is a fictional prairie town in Canada and has all the typical features of a small prairie station, with a depot, team track, maintenance of way siding and three grain elevators with associated ancillary facilities.

The layout can be operated to represent three different time periods:

  1. The 1950’s with CN steam and early diesels hauling the trains and CP providing the coaching stock for the local train.
  2. The 1970’s with CN and CP diesels operating freights with passenger service provided by CP RDC cars.
  3. The 2000’s with CP operating freight trains

The 1950’s and 2000’s modes of operation can be seen in the photos below:
