We have obtained a new location to set up and run both layouts just south of our previous location in Sherwood Park.
It is in a small strip mall at 101 Granada Boulevard called Sherwood Park Plaza. We have a spot in the middle right beside the liquor store, so you can visit the layouts and stock up in the same trip.
We will be holding monthly open houses for visitors on the third Saturday of the month. The next two occasions will be:
- No Open House in Sept due to Train Show at Millennium Place
- Oct 20, 2018; 11 AM to 4 PM
The 2018 Greater Edmonton Train Show will take place on Sept 15 and 16 from 10AM-5PM at Millennium Place, 2000 Premier Way in Sherwood Park.
Join us at the show, the Edmonton N Scalers will have their layout on display.

Edmonton Society of Model Railroad Engineers
The Railroad Junction
Model Railroad Display
Canada's, and especially Western Canada's history is inextricably tied to the development of the railways. Built from wood, steel, sweat and blood, railways were instrumental in creating today's Canada.
These displays show railroading and model railroading in all its glory, from early steam to modern high power diesels.
Overall Layout Highlights
- Both layouts can be disassembled, transported and reassembled in a matter of hours
- Buildings are made from kits or built from scratch using wood, styrene and cardstock
- A wide range of scenery on display: industries, cities, towns, farms and forests
- Locomotives and cars are mostly commercial models, although some have added detail or are custom built
- Steam and diesel, North American and European, freight and passenger trains
Six hobbyists formed the club in September 1987 to build a modular-style model railroad layout. As the club grew, it was formally incorporated as a non-profit Society in January 1990. Two other layouts in the club were started to accommodate the various interests of the group. Initially meeting in members' homes, and after spending 6 years in Londonderry Mall, the club moved to Capilano Mall for a couple of years and then back to Londonderry. Currently the LaBaJa layout is in storage and the Edmonton N-Scalers are in Fort Mall in Fort Saskatchewan.
The club consists of two sub-groups, one for each layout. Each club member is a member of at least one of the subgroups: Edmonton N Scalers and LaBaJa.
The original HO scale layout begun in 1987 is known today as the Yellowhead Rail Club and it decided to strike out on its own in 2011.
Edmonton N Scalers
The N scale layout started with just a few modules in 1991, and has expanded tremendously since. The modules are a modified version of the international "N-Trak" standard and uses Digital Command Control from Digitrax. For more details and photos of this layout click here:
The LaBaJa group was also started in 1991 and its name reflects the names of the founding members: Lamarche, Baker and Jackson. This large HO scale layout was designed for realistic running using Digital Command Control to allow completely independent control. All the modules of this layout are owned collectively by the group's members. For more details and photos of this layout click here:
