Model Train Swap Meet

29 August @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm MDT

All aboard for a model train swap meet!
No, we’re not selling off our full-scale equipment BUT here’s a rare opportunity for model railroaders and train buffs to pick up some amazing miniature trains, books and other collectibles at the Alberta Railway Museum. This is our first-ever, MASSIVE tent swap meet, featuring hundreds of trains (mainly HO scale but some O and N) from quality manufacturers like Bowser, Rapido, Athearn, Atlas and many, many more. Kits and ready to run, vintage to near new, from the transition era up to modern! Shop for railroad books, magazines, even a few surprises — all at swap meet prices.
Come out to the Alberta Railway Museum located at 24215 – 34 St NW in Edmonton the weekend of August 28-29 — doors open at 10 and the swap meet runs till 2 p.m. both days. Access to the sale is included with regular admission to the museum, where you can check out one of Canada’s largest collections of historical railroad equipment and artifacts. All sale proceeds help support the Alberta Railway Museum.
Please visit for more information about the Museum.

NO SMOKING of any type is allowed anywhere on the museum grounds.  This includes the museum’s parking lot. Thank you for your cooperation.

Since the museum is an industrial site, for the safety of your dog, and for the safety of our other visitors, please leave your dog at home. Service dogs are of course welcome.

We regret that not all of the museum’s grounds and collection are wheelchair accessible. Baby and child strollers are not recommended for touring the site. Plan to bring a carrier.

Rail Safety

All visitors are reminded that this is an industrial site and that proper footwear is necessary. Please obey all warning signs, DO NOT CLIMB on the equipment and pay attention to uneven entrances in display cars. Visitors ride on equipment at their own risk.


The Museum supports the efforts of Canada’s railways to promote safety. We highly recommend that our guests also visit the Operation Lifesaver website. There you’ll find more information about rail safety, including in-person presentations, videos, and other resources.
