How Do I Join The Club.
The Belleville Model Railroad Club is open to membership for anyone age 11 or older. Membership levels are Full, Student/Junior and Family.
If you are interested in model railroad construction now is a good time to visit as we are building a new permament HO-gauge layout. The baseboard construction is a sectional design and is now complete. Track planning was next and research was started on modelling the area between Cobourg and Brockville on the CN route as well as various industries in the surrounding area. DCC running has been selected and we are using Digitrax components with LocoNet. The layout will be controlled by a despatcher electronically using a computer software known as TrainController.
Trains have started to run and testing is being carried out. Scenery is being added and running nights organized. Members can bring their trains to run on selected Tuesday evenings.
Please contact our Secretary Rick Potter at 613-398-7260 or use our "Contact Us" web link if you are interested in joining our club.
There is no obligation to join and we even offer 3 free visits so you can see what we are doing. Full membership is as low as $5 per week. If you just want to talk about railroading we have members who worked for CN before retiring.
We meet every Tuesday between 7pm and 9pm in the basement of the Bay View Mall, 470 Dundas Street East, Belleville. Come and pay us a visit to see what we are doing and what we have to offer.
