Guelph model railroaders open house

Local train buffs  can join the one-inch-tall passengers waiting for the miniature trains of the Pacific Western railroad to come into view during the Guelph Model Railroad Society open house this Sunday.
The society will open its basement headquarters Nov. 4 at 50 Crimea St. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to give visitors a chance to see the workings of the fictitious railroad that runs along 800 feet of track on its model layout.
The society, which started in 1968, currently has 30 members who range in age, expertise and skills. Over the years, they have built a 2,500-sq.-ft. layout featuring mountains, bridges and four rail yards, a news release said.
“We’ve lost count of how many freight cars we have but it’s over 200,” club president Steve Anderson said in the release.
There is an admission fee, but children 12 and under get in free.
The club welcomes visitors who want to learn more and maybe even join, and suggests just showing up on a Wednesday night, the release said.
