"Rob, Several year ago while I was actively building an On3 layout, I developed a primer on operating narrow gauge and shortline railroads that would be appropriate for the UC&A. You can download a copy here. I agree with you that Keg Harbour…"

Hi Barry,
I just now saw your reply here while snooping around your page after reading and replying to Rob's operations thread. Funny, normally your reply to my message would go up on MY comment wall and I would have been notified by e-mail. Maybe NING is up to some of their changes again.
I'm going to have a look at your Pakesley article soon, and also looking forward to more of your input here as well.
You know the Parry Sound area is perfect for a UC&A member road. I'm building my entire railroad at home per the Free-MOn30 standard and really excited about the possibilities. If you ever relocate back to Ontario you would be all set to hook up.
Port Stanley is also not that far away from our neck of the woods when you occasionally find your way back to the Upper Canada area.

Hi Lynn,

I came across your site from a link list on Model Railroad Hobbyist. I'm a native Ontarian but have been living in Alberta, Texas and now the Netherlands for the past 15+ years.

You may have seen the article on my On3 Pakesley Mill and Timber Company in the 2003 edition of Model Railroad Planning. The PM&TCo is a narrow-gauge interpretation of the Key Valley Railway which operated in the 1920's in the district of Parry Sound. I've retired that particular layout design but am still interested in the overall concept. When I saw the UC&A website and the use of Free-Mo, it started me thinking again (I can easily convert my On3 rolling stock to On30).

I currently live in the Netherlands but have a place in Port Stanley and am frequently back that way.
