Boundary sub 2
Scott Calvert's Boundary Subdivision 2
Lower Level Plan
Upper Level Plan
|I model in HO scale and the layout represents the Canadian Pacific Railways Boundary Subdivision, which operated in the rugged mountainous area of south eastern British Columbia as part of the CPR’s “second” mainline. The layout will include portions of the CPR’s Phoenix Subdivision and Slocan Subdivision, and also GN’s 5th Subdivision.
This layout is a double deck design to maximize the mainline run and increase the number of stations from the previous layout. The design is more true to the prototype and is definitely focused on operations. One of the objectives was to create a sense of being in the middle of nowhere since a lot of the prototype runs in relatively remote areas of BC. While we are continuing to model the Boundary Sub, 1961/1962 has been chosen as the era to rationalize the through traffic in our operations scheme. I chose to model during the classic Tuscan & Grey diesel era of the late 1950’s to early 1960's, and in the early fall to capture the vibrant foliage colors.
