Calgary Supertrain 2015: Ray's Street Railway

Another highlight of the 2015 Calgary Supertrain was Ray’s Street Railway, created by Ray Clifford.

The box-style diorama, which features a loop of track running through a 1930s prairie city scene, is 20 feet long and built at 1:24 scale.

The layout has an LED lighting system for night scenes, along with working street lights and illuminated signs.

The scratchbuilt streetcars traverse a simple loop past scratchbuilt buildings, vehicles and custom-made figures.

Whenever I walked by, Ray was often surrounded by people enjoying the display—and it’s easy to see why, from these photos.

Now retired, Ray likes to take his layout on the road to shows. He can be contacted at
