What we do as a Model Railroading Club
We welcome anyone with an interest in railways or in any aspect of the wide range of railway modelling interests, skill sets and talents, from beginner to expert. New members are made to feel at home.
Please check us out at a regular Thursday evening meeting which starts at 7:30 p.m., where we work on our layouts, or just come to chat and have a coffee or tea.
The last Thursday of each month, except for July and August, are General Membership Business Meetings.
We recommend that you e-mail us first as there are no scheduled meetings in July or August and meetings do get canceled due to bad weather, etc.
Our club rooms are currently at the former Fenelon Township Municipal Offices at 710 Cameron Road (Kawartha Lakes Road 34), just south of the Glenarm Road (Kawartha Lakes Road 8) on the east side. Go around to the lower level at the back, sign in and join the group.
Bring along your rolling stock and give it a try on our layouts.
Our Club Layouts
The club maintains “HO” and “N” scale layouts at the club rooms. Our HO layout supports both DC and DCC. This is a constant work in progress.
We have a number of portable layouts in various scales for use at the numerous shows that we attend each year.
There are several fields of interest among the Club members including operations, layout and scenery construction, model making, railway history, applied electronics and virtual railroading. Our members support each other with their vast knowledge of model railroading and both club and personal resources. We welcome model railroaders both experienced and novice to our club with open arms.
In 2007 the Club entered into an agreement with the City of Kawartha Lakes which would see the creation of a Railway Heritage and Welcome Centre at Memorial Park in Lindsay along with the cosmetic restoration of the current train display. Check here Railway Heritage Centre and Train Display to see how we’re progressing.
