Copper Cliff – 2007

More scenery progress at Copper Cliff. The Copper Cliff train order office will be located in the area in the middle that is still open, between the CPR main and the Inco connecting track. The open area will be filled in once mountings for the tortoise switch machines are installed. The club has developed a mounting for switch machines that will securely hold a tortoise machine but also allow it to be easily removed for maintenance/replacement should it ever fail.

Copper Cliff on our layout is actually an amalgam of two nearby railway locations, Creosote and Copper Cliff. The storage tracks and industries shown in this photo are actually located within Sudbury at a location named Creosote. Copper Cliff is actually located a little farther west and has another set of storage tracks, a siding/runaround and a train order office. On our layout, these two sidings are blended together, including the industries at Creosote, and the Inco mine and junction with the Copper Cliff industrial spur at Copper Cliff.
