Basler Index

Cliff Basler's Magazine Index

This section represents many hours of hard work by the late Cliff Basler of Burnaby, B.C. Over the years, Cliff accumulated an index of magazine articles relating to modelling Canadian railways. This covers CNR-related articles as well as those on other railways. Cliff graciously agreed to share his work and we will continue to present it here, although it has not been updated since about 2007. If you would like to volunteer to update the index please contact the webmaster.

The index started out as a printable document but has grown to a size where printing may not be a viable option. First find the section you are interested here and then click the link to visit that page.
