Model train exposition pulls into town
On Sept. 29 and 30, people of all ages are invited to drop by the annual Montreal Model Train Exposition. There will be more than 40 model railroads, including favourites like Thomas the Tank Engine and Harry Potter, as well as an eight ft. tall railway, a six ft. tall spaceship, Lego, boats and gnomes.
Kids aged 2 and up will be able to play with the model trains and learn how they are made. Experts will be on hand to offer tips on how to create miniature model worlds. There will also be a flea market on the third floor selling used books and videos, as well as collectables and scenic arts & crafts material to make mountains and trees.
This annual train exposition raises funds for the Sun Youth organization, the largest independent charity in Montreal.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days at the Sun Youth Centre located at 4251 St. Urbain St. Tickets cost $6 for children and $8 for adults. There will be free parking at the Home Depot located on 100 Beaubien St. and a free shuttle bus. According to organizers, the least busy time to visit the exposition is Sunday at 10 a.m.
