It is bittersweet news to tell you that one of our members, Nathan Proudlove, will be leaving us.

We met Nathan at the All Aboard Train Show in Saskatoon last February when he was checking out Andre and Linda's display.  Along with Ley, he graciously took the lead in our first Prince Albert Train and Hobby Show appearance, and has taken part in each show we've had since.

Nathan's vehicles and creations have continually amazed and inspired all who see them.  His creativity and experience will be...
