Nottawasaga Model Railways Tour at The Bygone Days Farm
Jun 12 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Welcome to the Nottawasaga Model Railway. We hope this web site encourages you and your family to take a closer look at the wonderful world of model railways and perhaps build one of your own. It’s a hobby that will get you involved in carpentry, basic low-voltage electrical circuitry, electronics, art (for scenery) and model-making. But most importantly, it will encourage thought, imagination and innovation.
Model Railway Tour, Bygone Days Farm

June 12, 10:00 to 12:00

Contact: jim Worts

Bygone Days is a rich example of our Canadian Heritage thanks to Frank and Shirley Fisher.

In 1969 they began collecting Heritage items and farm equipment and opened Bygone Days Farm, a place where farm animals could be viewed at close range.

In 1971 the location was named Bygone Days Museum. By 1972, other buildings were added to show the growing collection of heritage items.

Now there are 30 buildings dating from the mid 1800’s. Each building is complete with authentic furnishings and artifacts.

The farm section has been phased out but the Heritage Village is thriving and has an extensive collection of buggies, cutters and wagons along with 3 steam engines, a steam train, 24 antique tractors and many other farm implements.

Millers Dairy Creemore Tour
Jun 25 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Our family began milking Jerseys in 1959 as Jersey milk was in strong demand because of its exceptional quality. All of our present-day cows can be traced back generations to our original herd. John’s father always said what impressed him most was that the Jersey cow breeds true to her genetic line. There was never any discussion about switching breeds. We knew Jersey cows meant always having a quality product.
Tour is June 25 at 10:00 am. It will last for approximately 2 hours.
