- The Dartmouth Model Railway Club
The Dartmouth Model Railway Club has been in operation since 1994. We currently have 8 to 10 active members and concentrate on HO Gauge modeling primarily. We don’t have a clubhouse, so currently meet on Tuesday evenings in the basement of the home of one of our members in the Woodlawn area of Dartmouth, NS. We are now working on our third layout. For more information on the club please email Dave Stredulinsky at davestredulinskyca or call him at (902) 434-5605.

The Nova Scotia LEGO Users Group is an informal group of adults who enjoy building with LEGO bricks. We displayed our first town/train layout at the annual Truro fall show in October 2002, and have been displaying at other events around the Maritimes since.
We model in L-Gauge, with track and train parts made by LEGO. Most of the members are from Nova Scotia, with a cluster from the HRM area, but we have let in someone from New Brunswick.
For more info on the club, please drop legonovalugca – Gail Meagher an email or visit our website ( http://novalug.ca/ ). You don’t need a huge collection of LEGO to join us, or be an incredible modeler, you mainly need to enjoy building with LEGO.

The club has been in operation since the early 1980s and features a mid-sized permanent HO layout, a portable modular layout and a wall mounted G scale layout.

The Truro Model Railroaders Association (TMRA) was established in 1977, and it is made up of people who are interested in all aspects of model railroading. The TMRA meets the second Tuesday of each month, September to June, to pursue our interest in trains. Besides discussing club business, we also cover current and upcoming events that the TMRA may be participating in.
Most TMRA members are active model railroaders and some are retired railway workers whose experiences have helped make our club very successful. Most are happy to share their experience, provide advice, and help others facing problems they may already have solved.
