Which of us has not been, at leatbriefly, captivated by trains. Large, thunderous and mysterious, these machnes have ever brought the promise of wealth, success and development wherever they’ve gone. At this museum, also known as the Exporail, take a trip through Canadian railway history, told through a hundred and fify exhibits. Also known as Exporail, this particular museum is maintained by the Canadian Railroad Historical Association. The exhibition hall presents its main attraction as a heritage streetcar line around the grounds and in addition a heritage track which pulls a minor traveler carriage on a previous cargo goad to Montée des Bouleaux. The line works each Sunday throughout the same period. The exhibition hall experienced a noteworthy extension throughout the 2000s when the Angus Exhibit Pavilion was opened for public view. A portion of the most important things were set in the new structure, which turned into the principle presentation building. A standout amongst the most outstanding relics is an old coach, which in 1939 travelled crosscountry over Canada.

We had a great time visiting the museum. Our kids aged 5 and 7, loved riding the outdoor trains and exploring the trains inside. You can walk into the historical train cars, and read and learn a lot about their history. Everything is very well organized. We will go again.
5 star museum for all ages. Whether you are a kid or a train enthusiast, this is the museum to go. Don’t forget to take a ride with mini rail. Kids love it.
It is amazing the quantity and quality of the exhibits, there is almost too much to see. The only criticism I have, and it is a minor one, is that the Halloween decorations detracted from the exhibitions somewhat. I will definitely return, and would recommend the museum to my friends.
The place is excellent for a railroad obsessed child or a grown-up, used to have such an obsession in the childhood, like myself. Reserve the whole day for a visit, preferably in summer, make sure to be comfortable to walk all that time. Cafeteria is good, but the area is a little too small for a bigger number of attendees. Definitely to attend once in a lifetime, but like I said, for the obsessed ones - 1st priority!
Amazing museum! So many locomotives and really awesome trains. Well worth the detour, although the public transit options to get here from the city are very limited on the weekend! The museum has lots of really interesting rolling stock, a tramway that tours the site and the staff were all great.
To who it may concern . Hi . I have a question that concern a locomotive as MLW ALCO RS-18 from canadian national railway (not cp rail ) . Do you know an RS-18 MLW specialist ? Thank's in advance .Answer Report Abuse
Hi Felicity . The museum itself is not able to help to my specific question , that is the reason why i need to reach someone as a kind of a specialist of that particular engine as the RS-18 of the CNR . Thank's anyway for the tip . Dan .Report Abuse
It is hard to tell anything when it comes to MLW RS-18 experts. I think you will need to call the museum directly on 450 632-2410 for this information.Report Abuse
