Several members of the S Scale Workshop headed to Saint-Constant, Quebec over the weekend to take part in A Great Passion For Model Trains - an annual train show held in the main building at Exporail: Canada's Railway Museum.
On deck with modules were Andy Malette, Trevor Marshall and Simon Parent. They were joined by Workshop members Fredrick Adlhoch and Brian Nicholson.

We set up in a loop-to-loop configuration that allowed us to run fairly long trains - including a few trains double-headed by CNR T-3-a 2-10-2s.

Internal combustion engines were also well represented, adding some colour to the consists.
But as is often the case, steam rules the rails on the Workshop layout. It's great fun to run well-detailed models of Canadian steam, then look over the railing of the mezzanine and see the real thing right below you...
We're looking forward to future events at Exporail!
