CP Slocan Lake sub

Planning, Modelling and operating the CPR's Slocan lake subs.
By Mark Dance
Canadian Pacific’s Slocan lake train barge service has inspired many trackplans and layouts. This clinic will briefly review the prototype focusing on its unique features, then review different approaches that have been proposed to modelling it. Finally the clinician will review how he reduced the CP’s Slocan and Kaslo subs (circa 1970) to model form and the challenges the model presented and its operation present.
