Home Layouts Did you know:                                   Layout in the Passenger Station The Passenger Station which is now preserved today in Carleton Place Ontario, saw many  VIA RAIL passenger trains arrive from Ottawa to connect to points out west on the Canadian  Pacific Railroad and return from out west to go back to Ottawa. (See Rail History for last VIA).  After the station closure, I believe the late Tony Percy a Member of MVAR, built the above  layout (Much bigger then) to display in the window.  Tony undertook the task of maintenace  on it, faithfully showing up every Saturday making sure the train set was lubricated and tuned  so it would run all day and without derailments, as people attended businesses then set up  within the station. Kids just loved to go and see the trains.  When Tony Percy passed on, nobody came forward from the MVAR club, to do the required  maintenance on it and so it went into the basement of the station sitting for some 20 years.  At the 2017 Lambs Down Festival, Mr Whitley interested in this project along with former town councillor Gary Strike, brought it out of the Station basement in a condensed version of the  full layout.  After being hidden away, it actually was operational at the show minus a section. Member Steve Mattey was very helpful that day to help iron out the bugs and running some of his HO rolling stock. Note a replica of the passenger station on this layout.  After the Lambs Down Festival a more permamant home for the layout was being sought  as part of our Carleton Place, Ontario Hertiage.
