Student Contributes to Petawawa Heritage Village

Train Station miniture layout at Petawawa Heritage Village

Once again a local student has shown his community enthusiasm and artistic skills through his display at the Petawawa Heritage Village.

James Cotnam, a resident of Pembroke, has created a remarkable working miniature panorama of the CP railway, which is currently on display at the CP Train Station in the Heritage Village. His 8’x4’ working miniature of fields, hills, rivers and the CP rail line took many dedicated hours to complete. Both James and his father, Robert, also constructed a miniature replica of the Petawawa CP Rail Station.

James is a Gr 12 student at Fellows High School and upon graduation plans to secure a position as an engineer for the railway.
