Thompson River Canyon in Model Railroad Hobbyist

In August it was the HO scale M & M Sub. on the cover of Canadian Railway Modeller. Now my Thompson River Canyon N scale layout is in the September issue of Model Railroad Hobbyist.

Getting in a magazine is always special, but this is a special honour since the layout was created in memory of my brother-in-law Ken Epp, who died of cancer in 2014.

Before he died, he was planning to build an N scale layout based on his favorite railfan area, the Thompson River Canyon in B.C.

Since he died before he could do that, I decided to build it for him. In this case, it was a simple loop on a 2 x 7 hollow core door.

While many have seen the layout on this blog, it’s great to be able to share it, and my memory of Ken, with many others through MRH.

(It’s also pretty cool to be in an issue that features the modelling of Bob Rivard, who is someone I greatly admire in the world of model railroading.)

You can read the whole issue, and read the article, here.
