Real Railways

The Hudson Bay Railway

Why is this section here? I liked the look of the locomotive models so much I purchased them.

The Hudson Bay Railway is an Omnitrax company. It operates over 810 miles of former Canadian National trackage north of 'The Pas' Manitoba. See the map for the track location.

Three locomotive models have been produced for this railway. Proto 2000 produced models of GP20s (2505 and 2506) in 1998 and a model of GP30 # 2508 in 1999. With Micro Scale decals and a Proto 2000 SW9/1200 I may make a model of #2512 (I know it's really an SW8).
Decals are available from Micro Scale; minical decal set #MC-4233. These are also available in N Scale (60-4233).

Hudson Bay Railway History

You can find a short history and a roster at the Trains Canada site.

Ian Bickle wrote a book on the construction of the original Hudson Bay Railway;
"Turmoil and Triumph - The Controversial Railway to Hudsons Bay.
Detselig Enterprises $ 39.95 Cdn."

Bart Hasselfield has some pictures of Hudson Bay Railway railway locomotives.

The "Canadian Trackside Guide 2000" has the current locomotive roster as well as other information on the railway.

Railway Time Tables

I have been working at getting the following time tables online:
The 1918 time tables are far from finished.
