Model trains are a particular obsession of mine. I got my first train set when I was a boy, and I was hooked for life. As a Canadian model railroader who wanted accurate models of Canadian prototypes, I cut my teeth scratchbuilding MLW C-630's and RS-18's for my version of the "Cape Breton and Central Nova Scotia Railway". I soon was getting requests from fellow modellers to paint locomotives and rolling stock for them. Here are a few models built for various clients that I am particularly proud of. Some are simple weathering jobs, some are complete scratch build projects. This page should give you an idea of what I can do for you. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your needs.
Canadian National 1786 is an HO Scale Overland brass RSC14. These were RS18 locomotives rebuilt with A-B-A trucks for use on light rail branchlines in Eastern Canada. Microscale decals, painted for a client in PEI.
Ontario Northland Railway Vans in HO scale are Rapido models, factory paint with custom weathering detailed for a customer in Ontario.
Canadian Pacific Railway 4438 is a F-7B unit, these would have seen action on CP Rail's passenger trains like "The Canadian" in the "pre VIA" era. This model is an HO scale Intermountain unit painted with True Line Trains paint and decorated with Microscale decals. Painted for a client in WA state.
GEXR 4019 is a GP40 built from an Atlas model and decorated in the Railtex scheme with decals from Highball Graphics. Painted for a client in Southern ON.
Canadian Pacific Railway 9009 is an EMD SD40-2F built from a Kaslo Shops resin shell on a Kato chassis. This model features DCC and sound. The SD40-2F is a railfan favorite and is known as a "Red Barn". Built for a client in Toronto ON.
