The layout over the years has received many contributions from friends past and present operators as well. All backdrops in the new addition were painted by Chris Lyon and the backdrops in the older section were painted by Michel Boucher following a private clinic by Chris.  Andrew Chisholm is the Webmaster for the layout and the Chief Dispatcher is Normand Rajotte.

Prototypical North Creek Engine House. Doors produced by GLX SCALE MODELS INC. Gilbert Lacroix the owner of GLX and an operator on my layout was generous enough to design and produce the doors for the model. The doors define the model and its location. Gilbert will produce the doors on demand for D&H modelers. See his website. I built the structure from scale plans that were available on the Internet. The website that I downloaded the plans from, subsequently suffered a malware attack. Luckily after I was done. Therefore I will not refer you to it for now.

The North Creek Industrial area is progressively being redone with fresh scenery and appropriate buildings for prototypical industries.. Barton MInes at Siding 24 finally has a shed that resembles Shed #2 on the prototype. Chris Lyon produced a 5 part series on U-Tune on Timetables and Operations where I am being interviewed by Doug Matheson on the process followed to build a Timetable to operate your layout. The series can be viewed at CNLVN on U-Tube. and was available on the weekly Model Railroad Hobbyist Readers Tip on October 28.There are also other layout Operations described in the same detailed fashion on CNLVN. the Sharks were retrofitted with the appropriate Baldwin sound (Soundtraxx) . Hence the picture of the Sharks pulling an excursion on the North creek Branch.
