Winterlude - February 5-6, 2005
Rideau Canal, Ottawa, Ontario

We were invited by the National Capital Commission to set up a train layout on the Rideau Canal for one weekend during the annual Winterlude festival.  Being outdoors and during the dead of winter this was certainly the most unique (and unpredictable) event we'd ever put on.  Luckily the weather cooperated, with mostly clear conditions and temperatures being relatively balmy (around freezing) for most of the weekend.  The layout featured many recognizable buildings from the Ottawa region presented in a winter themed landscape.
