Posted on: December 5th, 2017 by sjmr No Comments

Being open on statutory holidays in 2017 proved to be a big success.  When most other businesses were closed, we were open and will be again in 2018.  So bring the family and enjoy a fun visit with us.  We hope you’ll join us on Family Day in February, Victoria Day in May, Canada Day weekend, Civic Holiday, Labour Day or Thanksgiving

As we reach the end of 2017, we’re thrilled to report that nearly 8,500 model train fans came for a visit this year.  Many came more than once and some came every few weeks.  We had visitors from Russia, Asia, Europe, even South America and many places in the U.S. and Canada.  Thank you all so very much for your support.
