 2021 ANNUAL FALL OPEN HOUSE

Saturday, October 16th 2021CANCELLED

10:00 AM – 5:00 PM

The Waterloo Region Model Railway Club (WRMRC) is a 2000 square foot, HO-scale (1:87) miniature recreation of the Canadian Pacific Railway’s Sudbury Division, as it appeared and operated during the 1970s. The layout features include:

  • a multi-level (mushroom) design over 2 floors with tracks interconnected by helices
  • track arrangements of the modelled towns are duplicated closely to the prototype locations
  • locomotives and rolling stock match real equipment that operated in northern Ontario during the ’70s
  • long freight trains rolling smoothly over handlaid trackage powered by NCE Digital Command Control
  • a large layout in mid-construction, allowing visitors to view progress and see how it’s all done

The club is located in a quonset hut, approximately 1 kilometre north of the village limits at 1589 Maryhill Road (Woolwich Township Road #56). Watch for our signs into Maryhill, and at the main intersection in town.
