Railway club needs home

Since its inception 25 years ago, the Victoria Model Railway Club has frequently been on the move.

It started in a vacant garage, and has taken up tenancy in several empty shops.

Club members are equal part history buffs, equal parts train lovers, said John Britt, a member from the beginning.

The first incarnation of the model, known as a module, has been retired and members are working on a new one, Britt said.

The new module covers several adjoining tables, and depicts the historical E&N and the CN lines on Vancouver Island.

While the new module has already been showcased at a few events, it lives packed away into a trailer on shelves for storage.

Britt said the club is looking for a new home. The only requirement is its size: the room must be at least six metres square.
