Roger Chrysler’s Lake Erie & Northern

I had the opportunity to visit Roger Chrysler’s Lake Erie & Northern layout last week.  Roger has been working on this rendition of the interurban railway that, together with the Grand River Railway, ran from Waterloo at its northern end to Port Dover on Lake Erie.

Roger’s layout captures most of the LE&N by modelling from Glenmorris at mile 6.7 to  Port Dover at mile 51.0.

Thanks for the invitation Roger.  It was a pleasure to meet you and see your excellent models.

LCL shipments have been delivered to the LE&N by truck at their Simcoe station.

The scene at Waterford shows the LE&N passing over the Michigan Central's Canada Southern in the foreground.  Hoppers are sitting on the interchange track known as the "cowpath."  The TH&B interchange is just out of the image to the left.

  1. Nice photo in the link.

    The photo on Roger’s layout would have been taken from the TH&B track, sort of diagonally opposite and below the perspective in the link you posted. I love it when a model railroad scene captures the real scene so much that you pick out your vantage point in historical photos.
