This year's show, September 26th and 27th 2015, features the largest collection in North America of model railroads that children can operate. New for 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. And yes, they can be played with by the general public. More than 30 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. 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 Organization is the largest independent charity in Montreal and is renowned for its integrity and ability to help those in need. Sun Youth Organization also enriches those who become involved with it. Not only is this show fun, but, as a fundraiser for Sun Youth Organization, it is of benefit to the society in general and those most in need.
