Nice Jason.

As an aside, I wish I had a nickel for every location or waterway in North America named Stoney Creek or Stony Creek. That would be a chunk of change. LOL

What about Flat Creek and Gravel River for the most overused names?

For a modular layout that scenery looks great.

You might not understand this comment but I think one of the best things you've done with these cars is the raised casting on the little Beaver crest. I am so glad that this is a separate part. Dare I ask if it is made from brass like the prototype?

I would love to find one because surely these were offered through CP By-gones in 1968 when the PacMan came in.

Weren't they aluminum? Years ago I used to find them often on Ebay and sadly watch as the prices soared into the stratosphere . . .

That could be correct. I thought there was still a leaning toward brass casting at the time but I will be interested to know from someone who has one.

Yes, his blog says that Bill and Dan will be at Sacto with the pilot model. Jason will be back with his family in TO.

The crests were cast aluminum, I have seen one.
