We are currently closed.

We hope to be able to open for the delayed spring school break now tentatively scheduled for April 10 to the 18th – if conditions allow.

If regulations allow, we hope to open in March for one or two weekends, and then open to the public with our normal 2021 Operating Schedule but with the addition of the full 9 days of the School Break, April 10 to 18th – again if conditions allow.

Please continue to check back for the latest information on when we will be reopening.

About Us

Located in the beautiful downtown core of St. Jacobs, the St. Jacobs & Aberfoyle Model Railway moved to the village in 2013 after having a long history in Aberfoyle.

St. Jacobs & Aberfoyle Model Railway is an O scale (¼”= 12″) model railway depicting Southern Ontario in the late 1950’s. All our models are hand built and represent both major Canadian railways, Canadian National and Canadian Pacific. Come watch our freight trains and passenger cars recreate the era of the great train journeys.

Our scenery depicts parts of the Niagara Escarpment including countrysides, rivers, towns and a large city. You may recognize many of the industries, structures and scenery, which are based on real locations in the Southern Ontario area.


We are closed.

Our Board of Directors has made the decision to close the layout until further notice due to the Region of Waterloo moving into the COVID-19 Red Control Zone. An announcement will be made when it is possible to reopen.
