Bow Valley Model Railroad Association, located in Calgary, Alberta,
is a private club consisting of about 20 members whose interests
include several popular scales but HO is the most common.
club has no permanent space and meetings are usually held in members'
homes, thus limiting the number of members who can be accommodated.
Membership is almost always full and club meetings are very well
attended. We occasionally have room for one or two new members,
so contact us through our web site if you are interested.
club participates in most model railroad shows and activities in
and around Calgary and is a supporter of the Calgary Model Railway
club attends SUPERTRAIN in Calgary every year and also shows in
Edmonton, Moose Jaw, and other locations. In 2016, the club had
a layout in Salmon Arm for the Selkirk Express Model Train Show.
modular layout can be configured for small and large spaces and
is at a low level to facilitate viewing by children and handicapped
individuals. New modules are always being developed and existing
modules are upgraded from time-to-time as well. So every display
is different and this adds interest for both the viewing public
and the members.
club is proud of its public service record and often displays a
layout at seniors' residences and other similar locations around
club celebrated its fiftieth anniversary in 2013 and is one of the
longest existing model railroad clubs in the city. You can read
a brief history of our club over the years here.
