Model Train Clubs in Ottawa

A mighty engine’s whistle screams as it disappears into the tunnel bored into the side of the heavily forested mountain.

  1. Hi all,

    My 6-year-old autistic son is now very interested in model train displays after having seen a huge example in Switzerland (Transport Museum in Luzern). Is there a permanent model railway display someone in or close to Ottawa that anyone can recommend?
