S.S. Keewatin

The Busy Port McNicoll Shipping Port , Circa 1960

A model railroad enthusiast from neighbouring Victoria Harbour spent 10 years building a working replica of the Port McNicoll CPR facility with ships, trains, and the famous Hogg Bay Trestle.

[Note - Imagine CPR locomotives and boxcars instead of the CP cars. CPR was rebranded CP Rail in 1968, a few years after S.S. Keewatin retired in the mid 1960's.]

Wow! What skill and dedication! It is absolutely a work of art! I'd love to see it displayed inside the ship!!

Looks awesome

Wonderful job.

Wow is that the Hogg Tressel

Great modeling. I hope to see this in the near future.

How 'bout a close up of the ships?

Where is it now? It looks amazing and something that should be displayed.
