to the third annual Capital Region Model Railway Tour – Saturday, 19 October 2019, 9am-5pm*.
Once again, local modellers have offered to open their layouts for the day and host visitors who would like to see what model railroading is all about. This self-guided tour is open to everyone interested in learning more about the hobby of model railroading, whether you want to get ideas to build your own layout, or just like looking at trains.
Check out the Tour Stops page, for new layouts and those you may not have been able to visit last year (or just revisit some of your favourites).
Registration starts at 8:45 am, Saturday, October 19, at St. Anthony’s Banquet Hall, 523 St Anthony St, in the basement meeting room (follow the signs). Cost is $10 per person; under 16 free.
The cost to see only the portable and modular layouts set up at St. Anthony’s Banquet Hall is $5; children under 16 are still free.
PLEASE NOTE: The planned closure of the Queensway between Bronson and Carling this weekend will not affect access to St. Anthony’s Banquet Hall or travel to the various layouts during the Capital Region Model Railway Tour, which ends at 5 pm Saturday. (Lane reductions will start on Saturday at 5 pm, followed by the full closure at 6 pm. Full details are posted on the City of Ottawa website)
