Railroad club hosts last holiday show in Liberty Village
At the end of December, the public will have their second-to-last opportunity to visit the Model Railroad Club of Toronto before it leaves Liberty Village.
The club has been in Liberty Village for 66 years, but it announced last fall that effective April 30, it will be leaving its home at 171 East Liberty St., calling the club, “a casualty of Toronto’s development drive”.
Founded in 1938, and having moved to its current location in 1946, the Model Railroad Club of Toronto has been continuously building and maintaining the O scale Central Ontario Railway. The model railway, the product of decades of work, is the largest and most famous permanent model railroad layout in Canada.
The club will open its doors to the public for its annual holiday show Dec. 29 and 30 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $6 for children.
The club’s final show in Liberty Village will be in February. Proceeds from the shows will be go toward the costs of rebuilding in a new location in May.
