THE MODEL RAILROAD CLUB OF TORONTO, 11 CURITY AVE. WAS FOUNDED IN 1938 & IT KEEPS ON GOING

The MRCT was born in Harry Ebert’s basement, and from there moved on to new premises in Union Station. When World War II ended the railways needed the space, so in January 1946 the Club moved into another basement, beneath a former munitions factory in (what is today) Liberty Village.

The Club’s final move took place in April/2013 to spacious premises at #11 Curity Avenue.

The Club is open to visitors on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 10:00 pm. You may also visit on Saturdays by prior arrangement. Call ahead at 416-536-8927 or send an e-mail (preferred) – fill out the form at the address below.

The Model Railroad Club of Toronto has left the building

Founded in 1938, The Model Railroad Club of TORONTO is one of North America’s premier 0-scale clubs.  (I.e. each quarter inch on the model = 1 foot in real life.)  And what a model!  The Central Ontario Railway is an enormous, intricately detailed microcosm of the 1950s transition-era railways of Ontario, crafted over 76 years by the club members.  The entire layout has been dismantled, and moved from a LIBERTY VILLAGE warehouse (formerly a wartime munitions factory) to a new location, 11 Curity Avenue, near St. Clair Avenue East and O’Connor Drive.
