We are a small group of dedicated model railroaders in Saskatoon,
Saskatchewan. From left to right we are:
Jim Banner: Retired Electronics Technologist.
Jim models in HO indoors and large scale outdoors when he is not dabbling
Scott Gibb: Retired as Assistant Chief Dispatcher
after 38 years with the CNR, Scott is the only real-world railroader in
the group. Scott models in HO indoors and large scale outdoors.
Wolf Kurz: Retired Research Scientist. Wolf is our
railroad historian who models in large scale both indoors and outdoors.
Jack Alexander: Recently retired from the Food Service
industry, Jack is a neophyte railroad modeller who models in large scale
Tom Powell: United Church Chaplain at the Royal University
Hospital. Tom models mostly in HO-scale. Along with the other
four members of the Saskatoon Railroad Modellers group, Tom works on the
Western Development Museum projects and on the large scale portable BiG
Our group is dedicated to promoting Model Railroading because we believe
it is the best hobby in the world. This web site is part of that
Would you please, now or later, sign our guest book and let us know
how we are doing.

A note about spelling:
Generally, this site has been written in the Queen's English.
Thus you will see, for example, colour instead of the American color,
centre and metre instead of the American center and meter, Modellers instead
of the American Modelers, and so forth. However, North American terminology
has been used in preference to British terminology, for example, tie instead
of the British sleeper, coach instead of the British carriage, and ground
(electrical) instead of the British earth etc. etc. This has no deep
meaning and does not reflect anything. It is just the way we did
