 2021 ANNUAL FALL OPEN HOUSE

Saturday, October 16th 2021Tentative assuming reduced COVID-19 restrictions

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.

2021 Virtual Tour Video

We are pleased to present another new video for your enjoyment, this time featuring a tour over the current operating portions of the CP Sudbury Division layout.

This video was originally created as our club’s submission for the 2021 Doubleheaders Virtual Layout Tour. Though the event was a great success, the nature of Zoom Meetings prevented the greater masses from being able to view our presentation. There was also the inconvenience of it only running once, and at a fixed time slot.

So we’ve decided to add our video presentation to the club’s YouTube channel for everyone’s entertainment, for anyone to view, pause and repeat at will.

All of us at the WRMRC are looking forward to the near future, where we can meet together again at real club open houses. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for October 16th. In the meantime, we hope this video will suffice.
