Canadian Railway Museum - Review
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.

Canadian Railway Museum, Montreal Reviews
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.
Wonderful place! A must not only for train lovers but also for kids, families, technology fans, photography enthusiasts; they all will be excited to go here. The most beautiful and well preserved stock of Canadian train history going from the beautiful locomotives, their wagons, the telegraph and the wonderful people operating it. You can also go outside to discover the workshops, the old machines across the park, take the small train going through the stations, pickup that telegram you sent from the main station, or just go for a picnic in any of their many outside areas. To better enjoy the outdoors I would recommend from spring to fall season although there’s also plenty to see indoors if winter is the case. Would definitely be coming back just to take more pictures.
Really impressed by the number of trains and cars as well as activities. Great place for kids. My three year old has been talking about it for the week since we went.
A great experience for kids and adults. We spent a few hours exploring inside and outside the museum. A great place and decent price. Will go again for sure!
All QuestionsCanadian railway museum
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
