Montreal Model Train Exposition

Wednesday August 29th, 2018

Montreal Model Train Exposition

A fundraiser for the organization’s sports and recreation programs.

The preparations are well under way for the Sun Youth Annual Model Train Show, a fundraiser for the organization’s sports and recreation programs. Featuring dozens of exhibitors, vendors and fun activities for the whole family, the show features the largest collection in North America of model railroads. Trains can be bought and sold at the show, which provides ideas and stimulates the creative mind.

There will also be books, new and used, and videos for sale along with collectibles and scenic materials to make mountains, trees and water and lots of free advice on how to create and enjoy your very own world in miniature.

This family event starts on Saturday, September 29th at 10:00 am. Again this year, the three floors of Sun Youth will be overflowing with wonders and treasures that visitors, young and old, will most certainly enjoy discovering. New for this year are original model railroads from the 1920’s, 1930’s, 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s, giving a historical view of model railroads from the 1890’s to the present. To the children’s delight, there will also be historical and thematic sets, as well as famous and collectors sets featuring popular characters like Thomas the Tank Engine and Harry Potter.

Once again, free parking and a shuttle service to Sun Youth will be available from the Home Depot store of 100 Beaubien Street West. With parking sometimes being an issue on the Plateau Mont-Royal, visitors of the event are strongly encouraged to consider this option, once again made possible through the renewed support of the good folks at Home Depot Beaubien.

The event is on Saturday, September 29th and Sunday, September 30th from 10 am to 5 pm at the Sun Youth (4251 St.Urbain Street –  H2W 1V6). Tickets are $ 8 for adults and $ 6 for children. This unique fundraising event is definitely worth a look and promises loads of fun and discoveries for children and adults alike.
