    I'm sure all you hard-core CP fans know all about the CP Special Interest Group, but I just found their website yesterday and there is a wealth of info there, so I thought I'd pass it along to those who haven't seen it.

    http://www.cpsig.ca/

    Check out the documents library - it's amazing!!!! I just downloaded and printed CP's passenger equipment roster from 1957 - an actual CP document that has been scanned and turned into a pdf file.

    And the best part is you don't even have to join the SIG, just the website - which is fast, easy and free.

    Yep, I'm into CN, but since I decided to add Union Station to my layout which was used by both RRs (and owned by neither) I'm branching out. Now as for being a guy - there you're wrong! LOL!! :D :D :D

    SD90 is very knowlegeable to be sure, but I figure the more sources of info the better. :) Besides, if you want to download schematics.... the CP sig has lots!!! :) :)
