    John Bate

    NMRA Canada District Director, Winnipeg, MB

    John has been interested in trains since at least the age of 4, after watching the action in the CPR yard in Cranbrook, BC. He’s fairly sure that he had to be forcibly removed under loud protest. He became aware of serious scale model railroading when the NMRA National Convention was held in Winnipeg in 1983, and began with an N scale train set shortly after. His current model railroad is a freelanced short line, in N scale, set in the mountains of southern British Columbia.
