Toy Shops ( for train sets)

by RichardDulude

Born in Cote'St Paul Montreal son of a war bride, after my father died in 1953
forced to return to England. Managed a return trip in April this year (2008)Went
to my fathers grave ,visited house I was born in ,saw a Canadiens/Toronto hockey
match .Visited many places and felt "at home". but I went to many shopping malls and streets and could not find anywhere that is a model shop or toy shop that sold train sets , and I was looking particularly for an "O" gauge layout.
Can you advise me if there maybe or is a shop that perhaps I can buy at on line ??
many thanks for your time Dickie Dulude.

There aren't many of those shops left, unfortunately. The two main ones are Udisco on Decarie in NDG, which is supposed to be the biggest hobby shop in the world, or something like that. Anyway, they have HO, O, N, and other guages as well.
You could also try Hobby Junction on Cardinal/Donegani in Dorval/Pointe-Claire. They have a great train selection.

Notre Dame Bascillica

by Reverend

Montreal has many, many churches, some of them very large and ornate in their design, but Notre Dame is the most famous of them all. Located in the heart of Old Montreal, this was for years the tallest structure in the city and is often shown in pictures with skyscrapers as an example of the city's progress in the 20th century.

The bascillica has tours and regular mass daily, also a small museum.

Basilique Notre Dame


Basilique Notre Dame 424 Rue Saint Sulpice or 110 rue Notre Dame - Montreal QC. (514).842.2925.
Metro : Place d'Armes -
Price : 2$CND -
Open 7AM to 8PM in Summer. Built in 1824 - 1829 by James O'Donnel, an Irish architect who converted to the catholicism to be burried under his work.
A Frenchman, Henri Bouriché, created the sculptures of the altar.
He drew his inspiration from the Sainte Chapelle in Paris (to compare, see my travelogue about this monument on my Paris Page).
The organ is famous because it has 4 manuals (keyboards), 97 stops and 7000 pipes.
The stained glass are recent (1929).

As a french canadian I have to tell you about the Poutine. Poutine is not only a meal but is a big part of our culture.
You must try thins meal: Fries, cheese and gravy! There is lots of different type of poutine but this one is the original. Around 3 to 5$ canadian!

Bon appetit!

You will find poutine at La Belle Province corner of Ste-Catherine street and St-Laurent boulevard. Downtown Montreal.

Bring your own wine... what a great invention!

by vibi68

In many of Montreal's restaurants windows, you'll see written: "Apportez votre vin", especially on Prince Arthur St. or Duluth St., but it is a growing fashion, sewing it seeds all around the city now. "Apportez votre vin" means bring your own wine (BYOW). Partly because alcool permits are expensive and take an eternity to get, and also because wine cards can often discourage patrons, a lot of Montreal restaurants owners have followed this path of letting customers bring their own wines to their restaurants, sometimes even if they serve alcool or hold a wine card of their own. No shame in doing so... Quebequers love the tradition dating from the 70's and miss it when in foreign countries, I'm sure. Just bring your wine (as many bottles as you want) and let the waiter uncork it and serve it... they'll even cool the white ones if need be. When you call in for a restaurant reservation, it is a common question to ask: "Can we bring our wine?"
