Ontario Northland N Gauge Collection
are so many aspects of model railroading to be enjoyed that it truly
deserves the title of “The World’s Greatest
of those aspects that I have found very rewarding is custom painting
and detailing my engines and rolling stock.
I am showcasing my efforts on this website. If you have any questions
or comments please contact me.
was introduced to N scale trains by my father over 35 years ago. I
discovered the Ontario Northland Railway in a book written by author
and O.N.R. historian Frank Vollhardt.
This set the wheels in motion for me.
I had found a prototype railroad to model in N scale,
which required research, road trips, photos (lots of photos), meeting
interesting people and joining the O.N.R. historical group.
goal when I started modeling the O.N.R. was to create a model of every
type of diesel engine from their first one in 1946 to the present, in
every paint scheme. I
have accomplished that goal and have continued on with various
passenger cars, vans, M.O.W. and auxiliary equipment, and hope to try
my hand at a few of the steam engines in the future.
It would appear that there is no shortage of Ontario
Northland equipment for me to model.
want to thank Mike Berry for his web design and photography work and
hope you enjoy the models.
