In late June Jason Shron of Rapido Trains made his annual summer pilgrimage to Winnipeg. While here, he visited the Selkirk Model Railroad Club, located in the city of Selkirk about 30 minutes north of Winnipeg. (And the place where the CPR was originally supposed to cross the Red River, until Winnipeg's city fathers cut the railway a sweet deal that caused it to turn south. Read about that bit of scurrilous 19th century politics here.)

But all is mostly forgiven in Selkirk, even if it remains a much superior place to cross the Red River (it doesn't flood there). And Jason enjoyed an evening running trains on the Club's layout, including his own personal Turbo.
