Portage la Prairie Model Railroad Club

Welcome to the Portage la Prairie Model Railroad Club page!

About Us:

The club is currently using the main level of the Portage CP Station as its meeting and model railroad layout location. The club holds its monthly business meetings on the first Monday of the month from September to June. Other meetings, layout run sessions, and work sessions may be scheduled by the chairperson on other Mondays or Saturdays (depending on the occasion). Anyone is welcome to become a member of the Portage Model Railroad Club by paying an annual membership fee, part of which includes a membership with Portage la Prairie Heritage Inc.

Many model railroad club members have also played a very large and active part in the station's restoration process and on-going maintenance, volunteering hundreds of hours of labour to perform such tasks as:

  • removing and cleaning up old building materials,
  • installing new drywall, flooring, and other interior details such as wainscoting, window coverings, picture rails, and various trim items,
  • landscaping and grass-cutting.

    If you are interested in becoming a member, or would like more information about the club, we can be contacted through info@cprstationportage.ca, or visiting us on Facebook.
