Who We Are

 

All About The Lindsay & District Model Railroaders

Our model railway club was formed in 1965 with the members meeting at each others homes until size demanded a more permanent location. Since then the club has maintained our own club rooms hosting a detailed HO scale layout. The club has become well known in our community and regularly attends model railway shows with our travelling layouts as hosted by other clubs in a number of southern Ontario communities.
Over the years, the Club has maintained a minimum base of 20 active members, fluctuating at times to more than 30. Some areas of member interest include model railway operations, layout and scenery construction, model making of various kinds, railway history, applied electronics, virtual railroading and other assorted related interests.
