Visit us at Exporail : August 2015

We're excited to announce that members of the S Scale Workshop will be taking part in this year's model railway exhibition at Exporail - the Canadian Railway Museum!

The show is called "A great passion for model trains", and it takes place August 15-16, 2015 at the museum.

What a great chance to visit the museum's impressive collection of Canadian railway locomotives and rolling stock, and then see our interpretation of these in 1:64.

We've just received the application form and we are determining the space available to us, as well as which members can make the trip. But we hope to field a layout as least as extensive as the one we took to Laval PQ last October:

As our plans firm up we will add more information to this site. Stay tuned!

Video from the North Shore Train Show

Okay: This is months after the fact, I know...

But Workshop member Simon Parent captured several videos of our modular layout in action at The North Shore Train Show last October.

This show marked the first time we had return loops in the layout, and it allowed us to run much longer trains than we have at previous shows. A great time was had by all, and we're looking forward to getting together again to run trains and socialize.

If you haven't yet seen Simon's videos, here they are:
