Roy Groeneveld: A Man and His Models
Roy worked as a C.N.R. Locomotive Crane Operator 1957-1966. At home he enjoyed a Lionel Model Railroad – unable to obtain a model of his Wellman Crane he decided to build it. This was successful and inspired him to build Railroad Stations and Equipment. Visit the Museum and see over 30 handcrafted intricate models of bridges, trains and forestry operations/equipment.
