Fabulous train museum with historical trains of Canadian eras. Tucked away on a side street in this small town the railway museum is a delight not only to the train buff but to any history buff and tourist in general .

This is a private museum where the owners do not charge for admission but do accept donations. It has a very large selection of artifacts related to the railways but also, much much more.
