File Description:
The main part of this scenery installs the Port of Churchill and the grain silos. Churchill CYYQ has been made by Sidney Schwartz, and this also adds AI and slightly modifies his parking to make a space big enough for Buffalo's C46. Churchill is in northern Manitoba, on the Churchill River where it empties into Hudson Bay. The town is accesible by air, by boat (once the winter ice melts) and most importantly by rail from the south. Grain from the Canadian prairies is hauled north and stored in Churchill for export to Europe by a sea route that is significantly shorter than any other, and there is a grain carrier included in the AI. Today there are perhaps 810 people living in Churchill, a slowly declining number. There are also a number of impressive polar bears. There was another port south of Churchill, but it was never completed, never connected to a railroad track, and never used. It was called Port Nelson, and was at the mouth of the Nelson River. Nearby, on the Hayes River, there is an old trading post called York Factory, built in 1684 and preserved as part of the living history of the north of Canada. The second scenery is for this, and for the nearby tourist camp called Silver Goose Lodge, which as the name suggests is for hunters. The large grassy area alongside the fort was for the trappers to camp on when they all arrived in early summer to trade the furs for goods.
