The Model Railroad Club of Toronto
Originally located in founder Ebert’s basement, the MRCT soon moved to new premises at Toronto’s Union Station. After World War II, the railways annexed the space the Club occupied and in January 1946, the Club moved to premises in the basement of 171 East Liberty Street in what is now part of Toronto's Liberty Village neighbourhood.
Since the mid-1960s the Club has built and operated its layout as the Central Ontario Railway.
In the spring of 2013, the club's Liberty Village home was overtaken by gentrification of the once industrial neighborhood, and the club has announced its relocation to the Bermondsey section of Toronto.
Annual Public Show days
The Club hosts Annual Shows (open to the public) on the first three Saturdays and Sundays of February and on the Family Day holiday.
