Welcome to the home page of OVAR,
one of the oldest train clubs in Canada. Our mission is to promote
fellowship and have fun through model railroading.
The Ottawa Valley Associated
Railroaders - OVAR - is a club, established in 1961, made up of people who are interested
in model and prototype railroading.
OVAR meets the second Tuesday of
each month, September to June, to pursue our interest in trains. Each meeting, organized
around a dinner (click here for
details), presents an opportunity to:
meet others with similar
be entertained with a Program
presented by local, national and internationally known speakers;
see what other members
have done at the Display;
have some fun!
Most OVAR members are active
model railroaders. Most are happy to share their experience, provide advice and help
others facing problems they may already have solved.
next OVAR meeting is Tuesday
