In Store - Clinics

Introduction:
The Credit Valley Railway Company is pleased to announce our own in-house clinic program. At our new location, we designed this program with you in mind, as we now have an on-site clinic room. We can now offer our customers more than just terrific products and information from our knowledgeable sales staff, but also targeted instruction on a wide range of model railroading techniques and products. You, the modeller, can now participate in structured clinics where you can learn by doing and asking questions in a friendly atmosphere. No other model train location in Canada can provide this kind of leadership, which is our whole objective; to provide you with the most comprehensive experience in model railroading.

Rock Carving & Colouring
Cancelled - To be Re-scheduled
Class Room Clinic - Dave Sheard - In this clinic we will show you how to carve rock faces just like the ones on our store layout using an easy technique anyone can do. In addition to showing you the materials that are used, we will teach you how to actually carve the rocks and then color them to get a realistic rock face.
This is a hands on clinic - each person must bring their own utility knife.
Limit 12 per class. Pre-registration is required. Cost - $25.
Comments from past attendees: 'Great clinic, lots of ideas on how to make realistic rock face and painting ideas.'
'Interesting seminar covering a good introduction to the subject. hands on part added greatly to the understanding.'
