For months, our model railway, like so many other attractions, has been closed.

When the Ontario government allows us to re-open, soon we hope, no doubt under specific rules, we want to be ready to have you come for a visit.  It may take a while for us to figure out how to do it because our train room is a very unique space.  How many people can we let in and how long can you stay, how do we keep you and our volunteers safe, what about social distancing, how will you be able to pay?   

We are working on strategies for all these issues.  

Please keep checking back here for further information.

As always, thank you for supporting our wonderful model railway. We look forward to your next visit.

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.
