Off my trolley – North Shore in ‘N’ gauge

I recently came across David Milburn’s layout on the web.  His layout is unusual in that it:

  • Is traction, a model of the North Shore (CNS&M) interurban out of Chicago.
  • Is in ‘N’ gauge.
  • Is British.

It’s also very, very, good, and it combines UK modelling techniques and values with a US interurban prototype.  If only I could make something almost as good….

He has developed 3-D printed models of the prototypes on display.  If you fancy a go at making one, they are available on Shapeways at the Boxcar Models shop.

Enjoy these YouTube links, together with a couple of the prototype station modelled.
