    Nice pics Charlie.
    There is just 1 small siding and 2 little industrial spurs on the CN track down the road , so I think I'll never have the opportunity to see live huge CN hook action

    I spent some time last night installing three flood lights on the front of the south engine house.

    They have quite an impact when the room lights are off.

    Go Habs go, Eh :canada1:
    Thanks for posting some additional pictures.
    I enjoy a nice clean hockey game, I'm old and was lucky enough to see Guy Lafleur scoring some nice goals.
    Born in Europe ( Belgium ) and married to a .. Brasilian women my # 1 sport is soccer ( the 2nd one is rally racing ).
    I'm watching the Lord Stanley Cup series ( I feel sorry for the Montréal riots last week ) but our main interest right now is for the semi-final UEFA Champions League.

    Great pictures TomPM.
    I'm fascinated by the billboard reefers and boxcars because I was born in Europe where that kind of of railroad advertisement was unknown.
    I'm a homebrewer so I particularly appreciated the Old Heidelberg shot.
    Is there any beer reefers available for N scale here in Canada ?

    Thanks guys!

    I am not sure. I bought the car off EBay many years ago. It came half assembled with no instructions. The trucks that are on the car are the ones that were in the kit.
