The second annual Capital Region Model Railway Tour takes place on Saturday, October 20, 2018. Local railroad enthusiasts in the Ottawa-Gatineau area will welcome registered guests into their homes to view their model railroad layouts and answer questions. In addition, there will be a mini-train show at St. Anthony’s Banquet Hall, 523 St. Anthony St. off Preston St. at the Queensway, and associated displays of portable model railroads at Galeries Aylmer and the Ruth E. Dickinson Branch of the Ottawa Public Library. This event appeals both to those who are interested in learning more about model railroading as well as to anyone who just likes to look at trains.
Registration is required to participate and and will take place at St. Anthony’s Banquet Hall from 9:00 a.m. onward. Admission is $10 per adult, with kids 16 and under free. Photo ID is required to register. For those wishing to see only the layouts exhibited at St. Anthony’s, a reduced admission of $5 is available.
Participants will receive a Tour booklet with the names and addresses of each of the layouts open for viewing. A GPS is recommended to guide you around the region to view the layouts of your choice. You will be unable to see all the layouts and displays in a day, so you will have to plan your visits carefully!
