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
