Cranbrook, BC - A Collection of Preserved Luxury Trains and a Collection of Cranbrook History at the Canadian Museum of Rail Travel

The Canadian Museum of Rail Travel is a collection of 28 railway cars of which 17 are currently available for tours to the public. Highlights of the collection include the 7 cars of the 1929 “Trans-Canada Limited” (a classic “Jazz Era Art Deco” design), 2 cars of the 1907 “Soo-Spokane Train” (a deluxe example of “Edwardian Art Nouveau Elegance”), and the 1927 executive night car “Strathcona” which has housed many VIP guests during its time in service, including Queen Elizabeth II and Sir Winston Churchill.

The current collection of rail travel cars, the largest in North America, is in a process of continued restoration that will take decades to complete. Because of the fragile nature of this irreplaceable collection, an immediate priority is providing a permanent covered roof to ensure these ‘deluxe hotels on wheels’ are preserved for future visitors and historians alike.
