BARM Secures two-year lease on new clubhouse

BARRIE, ON - The Barrie Allandale Railway Modellers have secured a two year lease on a new clubhouse. The new clubhouse is much better suited to our needs, featuring over 1000sq ft of usable space -
more than twice as big as our current location! Beginning Canada day 2017, the group will be planning a new HO Scale layout, representing the Barrie/Allandale area.

Layout Update May 2017

After 3 years of painstaking labour, the Barrie Allandale Railway Modellers are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel with regard to completion of the club's portable layout. (Then again, is work on a layout ever complete?)

Ballasting is nearing completion, static grass has been added to the yard to give it the appearance of an aging spur line that is rarely traveled. Some water has pooled in low lying areas due to the recent rainfall we have experienced. Spring is in the air and the gardens throughout the town are in bloom! Have a look at the photos below.
