Welcome to our model train club!

Ottawa Valley N-Trak (OVNT) is an N scale model railway club located in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. Our members meet most weeks for breakfast on Sundays to discuss trains.  Several times a year we put our club layout on display at local and out of town shows for the public to enjoy.  We are always looking for new members and anyone is welcome to join.  No experience required.
