All Aboard! Montreal Sun Youth annual model train show
Sun Youth annual model train show – The wait is finally over for the Sun Youth Annual Model Train Show, a fundraiser for the organization’s sports and recreation programs. This will be the last time this annual event is held in the organization’s Saint-Urbain Street building.
Featuring dozens of exhibitors and fun activities for the whole family, the show boasts the largest collection in North America of model railroads that children can operate. 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, scenic materials and lots of free advice on how to create and enjoy your very own world in miniature.
This family event starts at 10:00 am on Saturday and Sunday. The three floors of the Sun Youth building will be overflowing with wonders and treasures that visitors, young and old, will most certainly enjoy discovering. Returning 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. Visitors of the event are strongly encouraged to consider this option. Thank you to the great people of Home Depot Beaubien for their renewed support.
