About Otter Valley Railroad

Otter Valley Railroad was founded in 2003, a small business serving only special orders and local customers. The business was expanded in 2006, with the help of the family. Otter Valley Railroad started to attend more train shows throughout Ontario. As the business grew, so did the lines and inventory on hand.
After further study and review, the family set forth a plan for us to expand with a brand new e-commerce site. We trained all staff on using the software, and customer relationship management side. In the summer of 2009, www.ovrtrains.com was launched.
In the summer of 2011, we laid the footings for our brand new store, which is over 1,200 square feet for our retail store, packed ceiling to floor with model train items, in addition to our warehouse. We opened the new retail building in June 2012, with the grand opening in October 2012.
During this time, we worked with Bowser Trains to launch our exclusive C-630m locos in exclusive road numbers and names, which arrived in February 2013.
Otter Valley Railroad truly embodies a family business, Lorne helps with the business while working on his Chartered Accountant designation (completed in 2012), and Cheryl and Roger work in tandem to support our growing customer base.
Otter Valley Railroad has invested time, resources into our business and people to create a growing and thriving retail and e-commerce business. None of these would be true without our support from our customers both locally, domestically and international.
Otter Valley Railroad a family business, posed for many years of model railroading!!
