|DESCRIPTION||The Ottawa British model railway group’s layout "Marmadale Wharf" provides a glimpse of the diverse British scenery, during the pre and post WW2 period when steam locomotives reigned supreme. You will also see trains typical of the 1950s and 60s with the advent of the early diesel locomotives. Occasionally you will see more up-to-date trains hauled by the electric or diesel locomotives of today.
The upper level features a coal mine providing coal to a power station planned for the far end of the layout. In addition to the wharf, after which the layout is named, other scenic features include an industrial sector, a main line station, an English seaside village and the British game of cricket being played on a village green.
Marmadale Wharf is a regular exhibit at regional model railway shows and is also exhibited at libraries and church halls in and around Ottawa.
