Club Layout


The club layout, “The Shuswap and Okanagan Railway,” measuring 36 feet by 18 feet, is built in HO or 1:87 scale. During the O’Keefe Ranch’s operating season, the layout is automated with full sound at the press of a button. This runs from May to October each year and sees up to 30,000 visitors yearly.  The layout is fully sceniced depicting local topography and industries. Control and operation of the layout is by Digital Command Control (DCC). Members are continually upgrading industries and refining the track plan. In 1996, the layout was featured in the hobby press in Railway Model Craftsman (May issue).
