Click on each picture for a closer look!

The Canadian Association of Railway Modellers (CARM) was formed in October of 2003 to:

  • to inspire.
  • to foster fellowship among railway modellers throughout Canada.
  • to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and skills between railway modellers.
  • to promote the hobby of railway modelling in Canada.
  • to be inclusive of all scales and interests.
  • to work in co-operation with other organizations.
Each year, CARM host a small train show just west of Hamilton and north of Highway 403 in Copetown, Ontario. The show is focused on:

  • Operating Canadian prototype layouts
  • Displays by model craftsmen
  • Railway Special Interest Groups
  • Canadian Model Manufacturers Displays and Sales
  • Photo Vendors
Among these pictures from last year's show, we see that our TRHA portable railway simulator was a popular attraction.

This year, the show will be held this coming Sunday as follows:
