CP Rail Builds South into the Flathead Valley in HO

Canadian Pacific Railway’s Kettle Valley Division in HO
Shortly after the construction of the CPR’s transcontinental route across Canada, mining was booming in the mountains east of Vancouver, British Columbia. We share a brief history of the railroads that battled to connect the mines to the coast. One of them was the Kettle Valley Railway, a subsidiary of the Canadian Pacific. The Kettle Valley Model Railway is a museum layout located inside the S.S. Sicamous in Penticton, B.C. The club models the KVR line after the small railway became the CPR’s Kettle Valley Division. You’ll enjoy the layout’s scenic mountains, the modeled town of Penticton, and the custom model of the Sicamous itself at Okanagan Lake. A cab ride around the layout is also included on the film.
