HO SCALE: Canadian National Ry (Kensington Sub)

This HO-scale layout was done for a friend of mine back in 2016. The design was to occupy an L-shape space of 8'0" by 12'6", with 16" wide shelves and using a minimum radius of 24". The layout is based on Canadian National's Kinsington Subdivision on Prince Edward Island in the 1980s. Power is provided by a single RSC-14, with rolling stock consisting of 40' and 50' boxcars with a 55' flat car being the longest freight car.

The owner wanted a team track and three or four flat buildings for potato warehouses with two to four spots for car loading. After the first draft, he decided to make a few changes and swapped out a few of the warehouses. Instead, we included a fertilizer and chemical supply company (Brockville Chemical) which receives box cars and covered hoppers.

One of the potato warehouses was removed from the plan, and replaced with a small Gulf Oil facility that receives tank cars. Another potato warehouses was replaced with Schurman Building Supplies, which receives lumber in box cars and on bulk head flats.
