Bill Bradford is the Past President of our Ontario Central Chapter of the Canadian Association of Railway Modelers (CARM) and remains one of our most active members.
Bill's specialty is building HO models of prototype Canadian National (CNR) steam locomotives. He often takes other models and reworks them to make a credible model of a specific engine. Should you ever want to know more about CNR locomotives or want to have one made for you, contact Bill at email@example.com.
Meantine, here are a few photos I took of his layout that is housed in an upstairs bedroom. It is an amazing faithful representation of Allandale Yard and the surrounding area of Barrie, Ontario, Canada in the days of steam.
Many of the buildings are scratchbuilt and have detailed interiors. His model of the Allandale station (below) is exquisite. Bill has also built some interesting freight cars that I photographed.
He didn't have the space for the complete roundhouse so his son painted a number of stalls on the wall. There's a photo below and some excellent painted scenes of the Barrie shoreline and Lake Simcoe. In 2015 he completed a diorama of the roundhouse featuring every CN locomotive that ran in the Barrie area. He was bringing it to the Barrie Train Show in February 2016.
