Montreal Families

Little locomotives shine at model train expo

There’s a certain affinity for trains among Canadians, which only makes sense given our history; the Canadian Pacific Railway served as the primary mode of long distance travel in the country up till the 1960s. Even today, thousands of travellers still choose to make the cross-country journey by railway – but moving people from east to west and back again isn’t the only way trains bring people together.

This fall, a collection of model trains is coming to town during the Montreal Model Train Exposition, which will be held Sept. 26 and 27, 2015 at the Sun Youth Centre on St. Urbain St., 4251 Saint-Urbain, Montréal, QC H2W 1V6

More than 30 railroads will be on display – including my favourite locomotive, Thomas the Tank Engine – and children are welcome to play with them. The fair traces the history of model trains from the 1890s until today and features original models from the 1920s on. Enthusiasts can buy and sell trains, as well as other collectables and scenic material during the expo, which is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tickets cost $8 for adults and $6 for children. All proceeds go to the Sun Youth Organization.
