St. Jacobs & Aberfoyle Model Railway


This impressive railway model is a must-see for visitors to St. Jacobs. It showcases a custom-built miniature version of Southern Ontario in the late 1950s with moving trains and sunset at night.

The model features a variety of early diesel, freight, and passenger trains, as well as incredibly detailed surroundings like the Niagara escarpment, a construction site, and a movie theatre.

The St. Jacobs Model Railway was first introduced in 1972 when Frank Dubery created a small train model with his wife. Now, the display has grown to over 3000 square feet large, and guests can visit the workshop where new elements are added.
