The Red Fox Amusement Park - Gn15

The Red Fox Amusement Park train ride is a very creative use of On30" equipment in G scale.
One of the displays at Schomberg this year was the Red Fox layout which is G scale running on On30" track. Brain Fayle built it in 1:24 scale. It is built on a 2' by 3' pink foam with a light frame. The track plan is a loop with 3 sidings, two which are hidden. The history of the line began by servicing a gravel pit which became one serving an amusement park. The background roller coaster is the one in Vancouver based on an image Brian found online. This layout was featured in the Nov/Dec 2004 Narrow Gauge and Shortline Gazette. One can also view it on line at Dutka

This photo cropped was used in yesterdays White River Division wordless Wednesday. While photographing his layout Brain lifted off the roof so I could experience the whole layout. Some of the figures he had made for this layout but he assured me these two are stock item he purchase some years keep your eyes peeled for these two.

An overall look at the Red Fox layout. Brian is also an artist having painted many Ontario barn scenes over the years. Many of these barns are now gone. He did a great job painting the background roller coaster.
