Railfan Canada, displayed the module that she created for the Kildonan Short Lines modular group at our February meeting. The group will make its initial run at the WMRC open house on March 15 and 16. Suzanne did an excellent job of depicting a typical Canadian rural prairie scene, complete with an accurately weathered grain elevator!
The No.1 Northern Division will also be displaying their modular railway at the show. There will be displays of the submissions for the model and photo contests, and "how-to" clinics about model railroading. We'll also have a canteen serving refreshments. Of course, the man with the giraffe cars will be there with his portable Lionel layout. Kids (and adults) are always welcome to operate the dump cars on his layout!
The WMRC open house will be held at Westworth United Church, 1750 Grosvenor Avenue. The hours are from 11:00AM to 4:00PM on Saturday, March 15, and from 1:00PM to 5:00PM on Sunday. March 16. The entrance for the show will be at the side door on the west side of the church, but access for the handicapped (including an elevator) is available through the front door.
