    Sunday November 02, 2014 - 10:00 am — Guelph Model Railroad Society - Guelph
    Visit a Growing Model Train Empire! By: Graham Bryan October 15th 2014.  Guelph. On Sunday November 2nd  the Guelph Model Railroad Society (GMRS) welcomes visitors to see the mighty Pacific Western railroad at its facilities just off Edinburgh Road.  Remember setting up your model train set on the floor and playing engineer for hours on end? Or maybe now your children have taken over your living room rug with Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends? Well, there is a place hidden away in an old factory in the middle of Guelph where the model train world you could only imagine has been made real. Walk through a model landscape with mountains towering above your head, and watch express trains and slow freights pass over deep canyons on soaring bridges and through bustling cities, and then disappear into long dark tunnels. Pay close attention and you may even see Thomas, Annie and Clarabelle whiz by!  Life-sized GMRS members will be present to show you around the 800 foot HO scale mainline and answer your questions about the hobby. It’s also a rare opportunity to see the new city of Harrison under construction and see and learn about all the exposed wires, tracks, nuts, bolts and craftsmanship that goes into building a model train layout. About the Pacific Western and the GMRS: The GMRS has been around since 1968 and in the current Crimea Street location over 30 years. The number of members has varied over the years, starting with 10 and growing to the current 30. The members range in age, expertise and skills and over the years have built an impressive 2,500 square feet layout with thousands of feet of wire, mountains over 8 feet high, dozens of bridges, and four rail yards. “I really can’t keep track of how many locomotives or cars we have and I doubt I ever will” notes club president Pete Burgess. ‘Playing trains’ takes on a different dimension on the railroad: starting at 6:30 pm on most Wednesdays the members don radio headsets are assigned trains by a dispatcher, just like on real railroad. They set out with their train on a scale 300 mile journey. That journey can take up to 8 hours in ‘scale time’ – an hour in the real world. The dispatcher sits in a separate room tracking the movements of dozens of trains and giving instructions to each engineer over the radio. “This may sound intimidating but walk in the room and everyone is having fun like they were a kid again. And that’s because we follow the number one rule in model railroading, in fact the only rule, and that is to have fun” explains Pete. The club always welcomes visitors who want to learn more and maybe even join – just show up on a Wednesday night. About the train show: The Pacific Western is located at 50 Crimea Street, Guelph, west of Edinburgh Road North. Tickets are $5 with children 12 and under free. The train layout is located in a basement and GMRS regrets that our facilities are not wheelchair accessible.
