Terrific archival film footage shot in and around Elora, Ontario in the 1940’s. So much detail in here for the modeller and the trains start around the first minute mark (looks like some kick shunting in there too). I’ve never thought of a layout set in the mid-20th century but film footage like this sure makes thinking about it fun.
Want more? You really owe it to yourself to check out Trevor Marshall’s blog post introducing this area as a subject for a terrific model railway on his Achievable Layouts blog:
A big thank you to Ken Chrysler for finding the footage in the first place and sending me the link.
