DESCRIP-
TION
Lindsay was a division point for the Canadian National Railways with branch lines heading in multiple directions in Central Ontario. The layout concept is to capture the sequence of trains that would have been observed if you were standing on my grandmother’s porch located across the road from the CNR Station in Lindsay in 1957. Four villages are modeled along the Uxbridge subdivision that provide some switching of local industries.
