Membership

Membership Information

  • Interested in the CPR, or northern Ontario railroading?
  • Want to learn more about prototype railway modelling?
  • Wish to participate in realistic operating sessions?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you should consider the WRMRC.

Obviously we offer the ability to model on a grander scale than is usually possible on a home layout. However there are many differences which make the WRMRC a unique group. The most important is that clear and defined modelling goals and objectives have been set. This limits club politics, so we spend more time modelling, building, operating and having fun.

But what if I have no interest in Canadian Pacific, the ’70s or northern Ontario modelling, why should I join?

The founders of the WRMRC understood that choosing a specific prototype and era would limit popularity. But there is an attraction to modelling something that is real, or was real at some point in the past. Also having a set plan produces a number of positive qualities:

  • Clear goals and standards result in superior layout operation and appearance.
  • With such standards construction becomes well-ordered and motivated.
  • No conflicts in modelling direction, regardless of changes in membership.
  • Accomplishing common objectives leads to good feelings and camaraderie.

Additionally, the WRMRC hosts regular prototype-inspired operating sessions. Not certain what that means? Think of it as a giant role-playing game. We become engineers, conductors, dispatchers and yardmasters. Train schedules are followed, along with blocking of freight traffic between trains. Freight delivery is governed by a car-card and waybill system which mimics the real-life generation of traffic by railway customers. In short, the CP Sudbury Division becomes a miniature transportation system.

Also, joining the WRMRC includes the opportunity to build, kitbash, paint and weather models with the help and guidance of our more experienced members.

As an added incentive we offer your first month of membership free. This allows you to join in on our regular work nights and participate in an operating session, and make sure the WRMRC is right for you.

Virtual Doubleheaders Tour 2022

This weekend, from 9am Saturday March 26th to 9pm Sunday March 27th 2022, the Doubleheaders will be hosting a free, online Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge-Guelph model railway tour. The tour features a number of great home and club layouts from the area that you’re sure to enjoy.

The CP Sudbury Division Modellers will be participating again this year, with a new video featuring the recently added structures, new scenery and CTC signalling progress that the WRMRC has made through the COVID pandemic.

This year the presentations will be posted as YouTube video links available on the Doubleheaders Facebook page, in addition to their main website.

With all videos being available throughout the weekend, this virtual experience will be more like the traditional home/club tour where you are able to view the layouts according to your personal schedule, and in any order.
