Jack Scott's Canadian Pacific

In Part 1: I interview Jack and he tells us about his HO Scale railroad located in Ottawa Ontario Canada. The railroad covers many eras and it depicts scenes from Canada's West. He shows us his kitbashed buildings, unique scenery techniques and covers the use of LED strips to light buildings and passenger cars. Then he takes us on a tour. Jack explains that he likes to keep his operating simple. He is a "runner" and enjoys watching his passenger trains and freights pass through his wonderful scenery. Follow along and live his enjoyment of the hobby.
Enjoy the view as the West Bound CPR "Canadian: departs Calgary and runs through the Rocky Mountains to Vancouver on Jack Scotts amazing HO Scale layout.
In Part 3 follow the early version of VIA Rail train 2 eastbound through the mountain vistas and then see a special run of AMTRAK,  Jack Scott's passion for passenger trains is so evident. Enjoy
Jack runs a good size freight headed by the maroon and grey Alcos.  This is followed by the SD40-2s in the pacman scheme.  Thanks very much for this opportunity Jack  All of us appreciate the chance to see your fantastic layout in action and learn from your experiences in the hobby..
