The Model Railroad of Canada has a 74 year long history in Toronto having been founded in 1938. This month, they will again inviting the public to visit. Here is what they are offering as published in their brochure.
"The Romance of the Rails – large steam engines pulling streamlined passenger trains – sleek diesel locomotives in front of hot-shot freight trains – switchers busily sorting freight cars in the yards – mainline tracks snaking through rocky forested hills and scenic clear lakes.
Take a trip back with us in time to the late 1950’s: steam is still king – passenger service is frequent – diesel engines are the newest word in railroading. The CENTRAL ONTARIO RAILWAY is a thriving, bustling railroad in the heart of Eastern Ontario.
The CENTRAL ONTARIO RAILWAY, a world in miniature, is an “O” Scale (1/4”= 1 ft.) model railroad located in a 110‘ by 40‘ room. Trains travel over 5,000 feet of track, passing by hills, forests and lakes typical of Central Ontario, connecting two major cities each with full yard and engine facilities. Several smaller towns and villages are located along the way and a branchline serves a busy port where lake freighters regularly dock. Canadian National and Canadian Pacific trains appear regularly on Central Ontario track.
Come and spend an afternoon with us, and journey to another and another place. Enjoy the fun of model railroading."
The Club will be open on February 12, 19, 20 and 26th from 12:00 to 4:30 p.m. at 171 East Liberty Street in Toronto. Cash admission is $8.00 for adults, $4.00 for children and $5.00 for Seniors.
