All of the stations on the layout have been built as they appeared during our modeling era of 1953 to 1957. Many of the stations are still standing so we had the opportunity to photograph and take measurments before building the models. We were also fortunate to have obatained plans for a number of stations.
West Toronto - CPR
This is one of the latest stations added to the layout. It was built using CNC laser cut and engraved wood in order to match the original size of the brick and block masonary of the walls as well as the roofing shingles of the station. Other details such as the windows, doors and eve brackets were 3d printed to match the dimenstions, shape and style of the station..
This is third and final version of the station built in 1911. This photo was taken sometime in the 1950s. It provided service to passengers until October 28th 1978 when the last scheduled train to call at the station was the Canadian operated by VIA. At its peak 32 trains a day stopped at Toronto West. The station was demolished by the CPR in the wee hours of the morning of November 25th 1982.
