Welcome to Barrie Allandale Railway Modelers



If you are visiting our website we have a common interest. This website is dedicated to helping us promote our hobby and our club. We are a group of individuals from age 18 to 85. We model in HO and various other scales: we are all train enthusiasts and all having lots of fun doing so .

Our club has been in Barrie since 1964, and we have had a number of different layouts and many train shows over the years.


We share our enthusiasm on Tuesday nights by building a new HO scale layout at our club and operating our portable show layout. We also host a model train show every February.  As well as attend shows sponsored by other clubs through sharing our knowledge and having fun.

Our members have many skills levels who have, some basic knowledge and others who specialize in one or more aspects of the hobby : such as, framing, DCC, and or track laying, etc.

This allows members to help each other by sharing information, to either build our new club layout, or to build their own home layout. Members may also work on aspects of the club layout at home, such as constructing a building kit, or making trees, ect.


It doesn’t matter what scale you model, or even if you have a layout, or what level of modelling skills you have. If you are interested in model trains or trains in general, please continue to visit us at this website. You are always welcome to come to one of our meetings or become a member by filling out the “contact us ” form. You can also come to our popular train show each February.
