This year’s show, September 24th and 25th 2016, features the largest collection in North America of model railroads that children can operate.  And yes, they can be played with by the general public. More than 40 model railroads will be on display, including Tomas the Tank Engine and Harry Potter, with all the bells and whistles to entertain, and show the artistry and availability of the world of model railways. Plus boats, tanks, plastic models etc. showing what can be made using one’s hands.


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 collectables 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 show makes for happy children and grandparents with railways for children from 2 years to 100 years old.


At the Montreal Model Train Exposition, you can also see the facilities that provide support for the needs of Montreal. Sun Youth is the largest independent charity in Montreal and is renowned for its integrity and ability to help those in need. Sun Youth also enriches those who become involved with it. Not only is this show fun, but, as a fundraiser for Sun Youth, it is of benefit to the society in general and those most in need.


This show provides a flashback to the past and opens up old joys and experiences no longer common to today’s videogame generation, opening the eyes and minds of our youth to new possibilities and creative joys.


The best time to visit the show is Sunday at 10:00 am.


Sorry, there are no adapted facilities (ramps or elevators).


This show is a success due to the support of the media and clubs, and all help is greatly appreciated. All support will be given to anyone who wishes to help publicize this show (contact Ivan Dow or Sun Youth).

L’édition de cette année, tenue les 24 et 25 septembre, offre la plus grande collection interactive de trains miniatures en Amérique du Nord. Tous les enfants (de 9 mois à 99 ans!) pourront jouer le rôle de conducteur! Nouveautés pour cette année: réseaux ferroviaires des années ‘20, ‘30, ‘40, ‘50 et ‘60, donnant aux visiteurs une historique des trains miniatures depuis le début du siècle. Plus de 30 circuits de chemins de fer seront opérationnels, incluant Thomas the Tank Engine et Harry Potter, avec tous les accessoires qui laisseront rêver et stimuler l’imagination de tous les cheminots en herbe.


En plus d’un bazar de trains, de livres neufs et usagés, de vidéos, d’items de collectionneurs, et  de matériaux de bricolage pour construire des montagnes, des arbres, etc, les conseils gratuits de nos volontaires sur place vous aiderons à créer votre propre univers miniature. Cet événement est non seulement agréable pour le visiteur, il aide à financer les activités de Jeunesse au Soleil, des activités qui ont un immense impact pour ceux dans le besoin. Le public pourra aussi voir nos installations charitables. Jeunesse au Soleil est la plus grande organisation indépendante de charité à Montréal et elle est reconnue pour son intégrité et sa capacité d’aider ceux dans le besoin. Jeunesse au Soleil enrichit aussi les vies des bénévoles qui participent à son activité.


Regard sur le passé, l’exposition ravive de bons souvenirs, et procure une expérience peu connue par la génération ‘jeux vidéo’. L’expérience offrira une porte sur de nouvelles activités créatives pour la jeunesse.


Le meilleur temps pour visiter est dimanche vers le 10h00.


Nous regrettons qu’il n’y aura pas de rampes d’accès ou des ascenseurs.


Cet événement sera un succès grâce à votre soutien, et votre aide est grandement appréciée. Nous sommes disponibles à tous qui veulent médiatiser notre événement. SVP communiquez avec Yvan Dow ou les services communautaires de Jeunesse au Soleil. Merci
