VIDEO: Watching These Miniature BC Rail Trains Navigate Tiny Tracks Is Pure Joy

Creating the trains took years.

We know that miniature trains aren’t for everyone. 

But we promise that watching this new video of old-school BC Rail GMD GF6C locomotives navigate tiny tracks is pure joy.

The trains themselves are a construction marvel. 

“These engines are scratch built with 3D printed car body,” explains suremann99. “I think I bought the shells back in 2010 and it took about 10 years until I started this build project. It is now in January 2022 that these engines hit the layout, so excuse the sometimes-rough ride.”

BC Rail (formerly British Columbia Railway) GMD GF6C no. 6001 at Prince George Railway and Forestry Museum. Seven of these units were built for use on the Tumbler Ridge Line, of which only this one remains. Source: Wikipedia

Train nerds should know that “the GF6C was an electric locomotive for freight duties built by General Motors Diesel in collaboration with ASEA of Sweden. Seven of these locomotives were built in 1983 and 1984, for use on the BC Rail’s electrified Tumbler Ridge subdivision.”

But even if that means nothing to you, you’ll surely enjoy seeing these tiny trains in action.
