It is 1939 in southern Quebec, and a CNR local freight behind H6-class 10-wheeler #1338 is heading east to Dunham with a short consist of gondolas. The locomotive was built by Simon Parent from parts of his own design plus parts that were available from S Scale Locomotive & Supply. The model matches the prototype #1338 details with the modifications it had in 1938. The stock car is a resin kit Simon produced several years ago based on a CNR Fowler car. The wood reefer is a modified S-Helper Service car with 3D-printed roof and hatches. The steel 8-hatch reefers are CNR Series 1 cars built from MLW Services resin kits. The CNR gondolas are pilot models of a kit Simon plans to release soon. The truck on the bridge is a modified Hartoy item. Simon hand-laid the track and scratchbuilt the bridge from engineering plans. Simon took the photo, which appeared on the inside cover of the June 2022 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman in the NASG promotional ad campaign.
