Massive Model Railway Open for 3 Show Dates on Family Day Weekend in St. Jacobs!

The Village of St. Jacobs may not be where you'd expect to find North America's finest O-scale model railway, but that is exactly where it is!

 

Covering around 3,000 sq. ft. of handbuilt landscape intertwined with city and rural scenes, several Canadian Pacific and Canadian National trains travel the rails with both diesel and locomotive engines, as was the case in the late 1950s.
 

Operations of the trains and their intricate travels are operated manually by skilled volunteers from the control booth overlooking the scene, and there is even a magical dusk to dawn scene in which thousands of tiny lights illuminate the buildings and coach cars as night falls.

 

Due to the intensive amount of volunteer time to run this massive model railway, show dates are typically limited to Saturday and Sundays from May - December, and other special show dates throughout late winter, two of which are on the horizon right now! 

 

UPCOMING SPECIAL SHOW DATES! 

St. Jacobs & Aberfoyle Model Railway will be OPEN:

  • Saturday, Sunday, and Monday of "Family Day Weekend", February  18, 19, 20, 2017
  • March Break, Daily: Saturday March 11 - Sunday March 19, 2017  

For more details and ticket information click here and visit St. Jacobs & Aberfoyle Model Railway's website.

Each dealer within this expansive indoor antique mall can choose how deeply to discount their wares. And when they do – that discount applies to all items in their booth*! This year, expect to see discounts of up to 50% off!

 

At Market Road Antiques you’ll meet many friendly and knowledgeable staff, including people like Jeff. By age 10, Jeff had already developed a keen interest in antiques. Jeff writes:
 
“When I was young, my parents would go with me to auctions to bid for me, because auctioneers would not look at a kid bidding on items. My great uncle was a collector and I would go with him to auctions too. Things he did not want, I would get. When I was in (elementary and secondary) school I’d spend hours in the library learning as much as I could about antiques and collecting. As I got a few pieces together, I’d refinish them and send them to auction; the proceeds would fund a March Break trip to Europe”. 
 

From that early foundation Jeff built a 30-year career in antiques, working at well-regarded antiques establishments including Market Road Antiques, and is passionate about estate jewelry, furniture, folk art, china and glass.
 
So whether you’re looking for a show-stopping piece to shake up modern space, or some items to complete farmhouse rustic décor… are a do-it-yourselfer looking for a new project, or are in the market for jewelry or gifts for Valentine’s Day, make the trip to Market Road Antiques in February!

 

MRA is open every day of the year, including all holidays (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Years Day). Located on Weber Street next to the TSC store. 

 

*some "red dot" items excepted
