October 20, 2018, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

Welcome to the second annual Capital Region Model Railway Tour.  Select 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 any member of the public who has an interest in the hobby of model railroading. Come out and see on October 20, 2018!

The 2017 tour presented 22 home and club layouts from across the region – from Orléans to Renfrew, from Barrhaven to Gatineau.  Check out the photos in the 2017 Slideshow.  We’re working on the 2018 layout lineup now – visit the What’s New?  page for updates.

Admission is $10 for adults, children and youth under 16 are free!  The tour home base and registration centre will again be St Anthony’s Banquet Hall, 523 St. Anthony Street, Ottawa, off Preston Street just north of the Queensway/Highway 417.  If you’re new to the tour, check out the How It Works page for the details.

If you have a model railway that you would like to show to others, or if your layout will not be ready for showing this year, but you would like to participate in the future, please complete the Layout Registration questionnaire.

We’re looking forward to seeing you this October 20.  If you have any questions about how to participate as a tour guest, layout host, or volunteer, please contact us.  We are here to help you any time!
