Beechburg is a club owned conventional module. It is always paired with Cremona to allow for the fitting of the fiddle yard up against the backdrop of these two modules. The fiddle yard length is customizable in two foot lengths.


Bells Corner is a conventional, club owned, curved module.


Bennett's Bluff was built by Mark Zagrodney around 1998 and was named for a member of our club, Wayne Bennett. The module is a 22.5° curve with a deep ravine and trestle bridge. The module was later owned by Garry Comber and now belongs to Steve Adamson. The module was built to a size that would allow it to be transported in the trunk of a small BMW sedan.

This module set represents the Toronto, Hamilton & Buffalo (TH&B) Railway's Mohawk Yard in Brantford from 1953 ton 1956. Iconic Canadian farm implement manufacturer, Massey-Harris has just joined forces with English manufacturer Harry Ferguson to form Massey-Harris-Ferguson. In 1958, it would be shortened to Massey-Ferguson. Meanwhile, the much smaller but equally proud Cockshutt Plow Co., is only a few years away from it's takeover by White Farm Equipment. Brantford Coach & Body Co., partly owned by Cockshutt, is keeping busy manufacturing highway transport trailers, loaders and farm wagons, among other products. It remained at 22 Mohawk Street until at least 1964. The TH&B station and the Lake Erie & Northern (LE&N) Railway-TH&B interchange track are also represented in the module set to increase it's operating potential, although in reality, they were located further west and closer to the downtown core."

Adam's Custom Blended Oil (4) receives bulk lubricating oil by the tank car load and additives via boxcars in barrels and other plastic and metal containers. The finished product is shipped via boxcar in barrels, 23 liter pails and 1 liter containers. 

Rail capacity is one position for unloading tank car, outdoor loading dock for one freight car (40'), and indoor loading dock (94') for two 40' freight cars or one position if longer than 40'. 

Lindsay Steel Fabricators (5) will take on any steel fabrication job that the components can be shipped in and finished product can be shipped out by rail. They take in sheet steel and other dimensional steel products which they cut, bend and weld into components mainly for building frames, bridges and other large steel structures. Another sideline is specialized welding for car and truck frames for the automotive industry. 

Rail capacity is 2 indoor tracks for loading and unloading boxcars, flat cars and coil cars. Track 1 is 98' in length and track 2 is 112' in length. The length of cars on the indoor tracks may not exceed the capacity of the rail at anytime as the overhead doors must be closed in inclement weather or security barriers closed to restrict public access since the entrance is right on a public road. There is a third outdoors siding serving door #3 (70') which also has a storage capacity of 150' for excess cars. 

Speedy Freight (6) is a small freight company specializing in the packaging, shipping and receiving of delicate electronic and scientific instruments. They will also handle anything else they can get through the doors or for larger items they will make arrangements and look after the handling using the Team Track down the street. 

Due to the tight location between a public road and their neighbors the max length of boxcar or flatcar is 40'. 

Prime Meats (7) only handles Grade AAA Alberta Angus Beef for the area restaurants, meat markets and other select clientele. They have a capacity for one Reefer at their delivery door (80'). 

Commodore Transfer (8) is a general merchandise freight company serving the area. They have a capacity for one boxcar or flat car up to 72' at their delivery door. 

Dubois Grocers (9) receive fruit and vegetables by Reefer from southern growers and distributes the produce to independent grocery stores, markets and restaurants. 

They have a capacity for one Reefer at their delivery door (72'). 

Stavenger Plastics (14) does injection molding and extrusion of all kinds of styrene products. The main plant is located away from the tracks and uses a pneumatic delivery system to get the plastic pellets from the tracks to the plant. 

The unloading facility has a capacity to hold three covered hoppers with a winch system for moving the cars over the pit. The pellets drop into a pit under the rails where they are augured into a blower which propels them through a pipe up and over the adjacent rail, over Prime Meats, over Plastic Way and into the main plant where the pellets are stored in silos.

Bob's Fuel (13) is a small home heating oil business that receives tank car loads of furnace oil and distributes it to local customers by truck. 

There is room for one tank car at the unloading facility. 

Mert's Fish Boxes (11) is a small family run business producing wooden shipping crates for the fish processing plants out on the coast. Shipments of lumber are received by flat car and unloaded on the west side of the factory finished boxes are loaded into a boxcar for moving to the coast. The wood chips and sawdust are collected and stored at Chips CO-OP on the east side for recycling at a particle board manufacturer. For environmental reasons they can no longer burn their waste and would have to pay for disposal in a land fill. 

The track has room for one flat car (40') west of the factory for wood delivery, one boxcar at the loading door for out going boxes. 

Chips Co-op (12) is a co-operative owned by a group of woodlot owners who harvest their trees, chip them and sell them to particle board and chip board manufacturers. They also receive the waste from the Fish Box Factory saving them the cost of disposal.
The track has room for one wood chip car under the loader.

Intermodal Yard (15) is capable of holding one set of five articulated Deep Well cars (280') with the facilities for loading and unloading all types of containers. In future the yard will also be able to handle Road Railers.

Team Track (16) has 170' of loading dock and another 80' of ground level access. For individuals or companies that need help in loading or unloading their commodities Speedy Freight has the equipment, experience and is for hire.

Engine Servicing Facility (3) has a two track engine servicing shop and complete services for refueling, sanding and inspection of diesel engines. The local switcher also resides here when it is not in use out in the Park.

Sleeper Service Track (2) is used to store and service the sleeper that is used on the over night train that operates out of the downtown terminal.

Passenger Station (1) is mainly for local commuters but the Inter-city and Continental trains also stop here to save the locals from having to make the long journey to the Downtown terminal.


Chalk River is a 2 foot conventional module by Brandon Bourdon depicting a scenery scene.

Chalk River was a major division point along the Subdivision and it was the last of the original line of the transcontinental route in Canada. The crossing for this module was 2 tracks, one being the main and one being a bypass since the Subdivision from Smith Falls to North Bay was single line. Chalk River is also home to AECL but the facility is on the east side of Highway 17. Not far from Chalk River is Petawawa and Deep river. Sadly the tracks run through here no more since they were ripped up by late 2012 so this is also a tribute to the freight and passenger trains that have passed by this crossing and on this line.


Cluny is a conventional corner module by Gary Baillargeon.


Colonnade is a conventional corner module owned by the club with two industries.

Colonnade supports two industries: Superior Propane and McAsphalt, both served by tank cars.


Connaught is transition module owned by Bob Elliott depicting a transfer station. Connaught is a well known name in the Ottawa area, but the facilities are entirely fictional.The module is part of a 2-foot matching pair with Orleans that allow members to smoothly go from double-track conventional modules to a whole bunch of single-track Free-mo's and back into double-track conventional at the other end. Because the double-track disappears, getting traffic from Connaught through a lengthy single track to Orleans presents some interesting challenges to our dispatchers. At the same time, switching the industry on the module adds to the traffic load.; If trains aren't dispatched right, we can get some large traffic jams - not very good for business, but a lot of fun in running the trains.

The transfer track serves a variety of freight cars and has a two car capacity.

Corbyville is a 2 set FREEMO module by Peter Jackson depicting a distillery and other industries.

Cremona is a 4 ft conventional module owner by the club that serves as a cross-over track and lead to fiddle yard. The fiddle yard entrance module, as its name implies, is the way we get trains in and out of the fiddle yard. The small mountain which protrudes from the backdrop hides this from the casual viewer. The fiddle yard consists of three staging tracks where members can add cars to a train to take onto the layout. It is also used as a holding area for way freights until they are brought back to the yard for classification.

Lancaster is a small town along the Kingston Sub 20 minutes east of Cornwall on the 401. There used to be a siding here for MOW equipment but they ripped it up. The hot box just sits west of the crossing running parallel with south terrace and you can usually see one to 2 Hi rail trucks parked during the week. A gravel road connects to the intersection of South Terrace and Maple Street and runs beside the tracks right to Hwy 34. There are 2 huts there right beside side the line. One is a 6’x6’ hut and the other is 6’x10’ hut on concrete pads. It’s a great place to watch trains fly by at track speed along this very busy corridor.


Longlac is a 45 degree FREEMO bridge owned by the club.

Maenclochog is a 4 set conventional module consisting of 4 individual modules owned by the club. This set is always used together. Maenclochog, Great Western Railway, is a small locomotive terminal with a turntable to provide access to locomotive storage and servicing tracks. Power to the tracks is controlled by a bank of on/off switches with indicator lights showing when the track is live. The turntable motor is controlled by a center-off dpdt switch. Power to the locomotive wheel cleaning track is controlled separately by an on/off switch. Locomotives run on to a series of brass brushes and couple to the stop block at the end. The wheels are then spun briefly (not more than 15 seconds) in both directions. The locomotive can then be reversed back on to the access track.


These four modules have numerous sidings for a variety of freight cars.


Mandrake is a 2ft conventional module owned by the club depicting a scenery scene. The scenery was touched up by Colin Churcher in May 2022. A platform where visitors can alight for Party Central has been added.

Marvelville Narrows is a small FREEMO terminating module owned by the club.

Mason Creek is a 2.5 module set owned and rebuilt by Robin Allardyce. It is a rebuild of the original Mason Creek which depicted logging operation in Northern Ontario. 


The logging operation on the west side has been expanded with its own siding requiring two “50’ flat cars for wood transport.

Nearby, on the main line, the Passenger Whistle Stop, which was next to the freight siding, has moved east across the Creek and is replaced by a Freight Depot on the west side of the Creek which can hold a single 40 or 50’ freight car on this original siding.

Further east and north of the main line rock cut, is a siding servicing a local stock yard. It is a busy place holding two 40’ stock cars at a time.

North of the stock yard, a quarry, on its own siding, is in operation regularly sending out two 40’ aggregate filled open gondolas.

Trains working these industries will have to be aware of other trains moving through the area on the freemo link which will send trains north.

The lumber loads picked up at the Mason Creek Lumber Company and the aggregate loads picked up at the Mason Creek Aggregate Company when returned to Ottawa Yard at the end of a run will be removed from their respective cars and returned to the empties left at the two industries

M&O Junction is a four set conventional wye previously owned by Bob Elliott, purchased by Garry Comber who donated it to the club.

2 - Handcar Shed 
3 - Abandoned Coal/Grain/Flour Dealer 
4 - Boarded up Interlocking Tower


Mocassin bridge is a 4ft conventional bridge module owned by the club.

Sturgeon Fuels/Black Bay Lumber (formerly O'Brien Fuels/Red Baron Lumber)

Sturgeon/Black Bay is a three module transition set in the shape of a 90 degree corner owned by George Taylor (formerly owned by Garry Comber).

The Sturgeon Fuel Depot has two tracks. The siding nearest to the mainline is the “Arrival Track” for incoming cars. The inside siding is the “Unloading Track” where fuel oil is off-loaded from railroad tank cars into two vertical tanks before being piped, as required, to three horizontal storage tanks for pick-up by road tank trucks for local consumption.

When switching, a local brings 2 full RR tank cars to the "Arrival Track" and moves the 2 cars already spotted on the "Arrival Track" to the "Unloading Track." The local splits the two cars for unloading between the 2 pumping stations and takes away the 2 empty tank cars that were previously in the "Unloading Track". 

The inside siding also has a Warehouse for barrels of oil or other goods involved in the operations of Sturgeon Fuels. These are normally delivered by box car.

Black Bay Lumber features two tracks with the track nearest to the single mainline to assist in switching flat cars or double-door box cars at the lumber yard itself.

There is also a Caboose track leading to Black Bay Lumber to assist in switching that industry.


Orleans is a transition module owned by Kim Zuters (formerly owned by Bob Elliott) depicting a sand-and-gravel operation with a nice high wood trestle. It is a mating pair to Connaught.

A sand unloading track for a single freight car.


Ottawa River is a conventional large radius bridge owned by the club.

Ottawa yard is a two-part yard consisting of an East and West section owned by the club. 


Ottawa East is a four-module set consisting of a conventional classification yard and a passenger station with additional servicing / storage tracks with the double-track mainline running down the center. Originally an interchange with a signal tower and steam servicing facilities known as Ottawa East, Ottawa Yard was built to accommodate a large upswing in traffic. The railroad acquired as much land as it could and built a compact but efficient facility. Not included in the original plans, Ottawa Yard tower was hastily constructed after the railroad realized that Ottawa East was now going to become a hub and handle a lot of traffic. The yard was expanded to its’ present size while it was still under construction.

The old Ottawa East signal tower has been recently given a new lease on life when it was selected to be partially converted into a cell tower site. Originally slated for demolition, the building was found to be in remarkably good condition and suitable for housing the cell site equipment.

Ottawa Station is modeled after the real-life Ottawa Station that opened in 1967 replacing Union Station located downtown. Beside the station are storage tracks that are mainly used as a refueling facility for passenger units. A local distributor has been contracted to provide a “refuel on demand” service using tanker trucks. 

Terminal Ave Intermodal is a small (but busy) intermodal facility that was constructed on the former locomotive servicing area which was decommissioned with the advent of diesel power. The terminal is currently being upgraded to accommodate a Mi-Jack container crane which will speed up loading and unloading activities. Along with the crane, the facility will receive a security upgrade which will include a guardhouse and perimeter fencing.

Three Bridges is a conventional wye module owned by the club. It has an optional attachment, Mud creek which can also be used on its own as a FREEMO module. Colin Churcher added a few more details to Mud Creek in April 2022

This four-part wye was the first to be built to the Club's new 53" footprint for corners, allowing room for the new minimum radius standard of 40" on the outside mains (the inside mains are a still generous 34 1/2" radius). It is also the first wye in the club which is a full double-tracked junction, and the first to have a freemo branch coming off the front of the module.

The main lines across the front have a left-hand and a right-hand crossover. The freemo line branches off one of the wye's legs and crosses the front mainlines at right angles; a custom two-foot freemo module bolts onto the front of the set.

The set is named after the town of Three Bridges in Sussex, England. It lives up to its name by having the two wyes and the branch line cross a road on three different bridges - a brick arch in an embankment, a through plate girder bridge and a pair of Warren truss bridges.


Timber Grove is a terminating FREEMO module owned by the club.

The town is a busy place if you look closely, as keen eyes will count twenty people.


Willowdale is a two foot conventional club module depicting a scenery scene.

Winchester is a two set conventional module by John Scollick depicting a grain elevelator and transfer stations.


Currently partially unscenicked, the module supports two forms of operation:

- Allocating the two back eastern tracks to the elevator, and the rear western track as a town site. The two town site industries are switched normally. However, the elevator follows a rotational procedure. New drops are spotted to the “Staging” track while the existing cars on the staging track are moved to the “Loading” track, and cars on the loading track are picked up for return.

- Eliminating the town site, each of the four rear sidings holds one grain car each. Operators must place new arrivals to the two eastern tracks, moving the existing cars on the two eastern tracks to the two western sidings – one car on each track, picking up the two cars on western tracks.

While the town site track may hold three cars only two cars will be allowed, and cannot be moved for grain elevator operations, unless it is part of the normal operations for the session.

Wolf Creek is a three set FREEMO module by Jeff Hill depicting a scenery scene.

Wolf Creek

A lone passenger is waiting on the platform as the daily local eases to a stop at Wolf Creek, a flag stop in the Upper Ottawa Valley of eastern Ontario. It’s early September 1935, and the foliage is starting to change colour as the nights get colder. A section gang has been sent out to clean up the facilities before some company big shots pass through in a few days, so fresh gravel is being spread around the buildings and a ladder indicates that the broken crossbuck is finally being replaced.

Wolf Creek

Wolf Creek

Features: Bridge, river, embankments, hills and valleys, and lots of beautiful scenery.

The module is a freelanced interpretation of the edge of the Canadian Shield, where small farms subsist on marginal land amongst the rocks and a mixture of deciduous and coniferous trees is transitioning to the northern boreal forest. The logging truck approaching the crossing and the clear cuts on either side of the tracks beyond the bridge tell you that lumbering is the main industry here.

Wolf Creek is one of HOTRAK’s oldest modules, construction having begun in 1997; details continue to be added over a quarter of a century later. It follows HOTRAK’s variant of the Free-mo modular standard, with a single track mainline passing through a broad 22.5 degree curve. Scenery is the main focus, and 6 inch deep framing encouraged contouring the ground so it rises and falls in relation to track level. The scenery construction is a hybrid – carved Styrofoam with plaster rock outcrops from the water tank to just the other side of the creek, then plaster-soaked paper towel on a cardboard lattice to the other end of the module; the latter approach being what the builder was familiar with at the time. While the scenery has held up very well over the years, the weight of the plaster scenery makes this method one the builder would not repeat on another module.
One other notable feature is the short 19 inch extension. When built, Wolf Creek was intended for use with two clubs – HOTRAK and another group that used a similar single track standard with the exception that the end plates were contoured rather than flat. The extension has one end plate of each type – by attaching it to either end of the main module, Wolf Creek would become compatible with either club’s standard. While the second group disbanded before ever setting up modules, Wolf Creek remains an example of designing a module that can be used with different standards, or to connect two modular clubs into a single layout.

Wolf Creek s the companion to Jeff’s Spanish River module.


Wyecliff is a conventional wye module owned by the club with a passenger station.


York River is a conventional corner module by Paul Anderson depicting an aggregate business.
