Ontario - Fort Erie Railway Museum
Fort Erie, ON - Canadian National Railway steam engine 6218 is the cornerstone artifact of the Fort Erie Railway Museum. Built in 1948, the 4-8-4 wheel configuration Northern type served well into the 1960s. In its retirement it serves as a reminder of days past when Fort Erie boasted the third-largest rail yard in Canada. As well as a host of artifacts including tools and telegraphic equipment, the original Grand Trunk Railway Station in Ridgeway and the CN B-1 station (used to monitor traffic over the International Railway Bridge) were moved to the railroad museum site and are being preserved. The B-1 serves as office and gift shop. The Ridgeway Station houses the main exhibit area.

Ontario - Komoka Railway Museum Inc.
Komoka, ON - The Museum is housed in the former Canadian National Railway station in Komoka, Ontario. When purchased as a museum in 1978, the building was moved to its present site north of the CNR tracks and adjacent to the Komoka Community Centre.

Many railroad items are available for close examination including telegraph keys, spike hammers, spike pullers, switch lanterns, steam gauges, a railroad safe, a baggage sleigh and a three-wheel velocipede.

The Museum's pride is a 1913 Shay steam locomotive, which is now nearly completely restored. It rests in its own building along with other artifacts. When restored, a pre-1939 steel-sided baggage car will house the gift shop, office and a model railroad display.

Ontario - Muskoka Heritage Place Portage Flyer
Huntsville, ON - The Portage Flyer steam train began its proud legacy as the world's smallest commercial railroad, operating from 1904 until 1959 in Dwight Ontario. Transportation in Muskoka around the early 1900's meant for "some fun with steam" as visitors and supplies chugged along The Muskoka River aboard the Steamship Algonquin from Huntsville through Fairy Lake onto North Portage at the far end of Peninsula Lake. And that is where The Portage Flyer took over. The train served as (as its name suggests) a portage vehicle operating on 1 1/8 mile of narrow gauge track between what is still called North and South Portage. With 170 feet of elevation variance between Fairy Lake and Lake of Bays, dredging was not an option and a lock system would have proven too costly. So the Flyer was responsible for providing transport of everything from mail, cargo, building supplies and tourists to South Portage where the steamship Iroquois carried the last leg onto such lavish resorts as The Britannia Inn, The Wa Wa Hotel and the most celebrated Bigwin Inn.

In the 90's the Portage Flyer was purchased from St. Thomas where it operated as The Pinnafore Railway and relocated closer to its origin At Muskoka Heritage Place. Thanks to countless volunteer efforts and generous donations, track was laid and the Rotary Village Station was completed and equipped with a telegraph office. On featured days we're able to allow visitors to create a message to be wired down the line to end of the track at Fairy Lake Station where it would be waiting upon the Flyer's arrival.

We pull the authentic coaches namely, the Algonquin and Iroquois in our shoulder seasons of May, June, September and October by our 1949 diesel locomotive, so as to prolong the steam engine's longevity. Whichever locomotive is pulling the authentic coaches expect a return journey that will take about 30 minutes.

Ontario - Palmerston Railway Heritage Museum
Palmerston, ON - Palmerston Railway Heritage Museum. The town of Palmerston has a very unique history in Southwestern Ontario. When the railways began to extend to this part of the province the vast majority of towns already existed when the railway lines were built. As a result the stations were built on the outskirts of the towns. Palmerston, however, came into existence in the 1870's with the arrival of the Wellington, Grey & Bruce Railway. Since the town was built around the railroad, the town of Palmerston has the smallest main street in Southwestern Ontario, as well as the longest Pedestrian Bridge in all of Ontario.

The museum itself is unique as we are the only Railway Museum in Wellington County. The museum has on display numerous railway and Victorian artifacts that have been kindly donated by members of the community and surrounding areas. We also host a large library of railway books which are located in our Genealogy room. The museum has numerous railway records and has begun to collect microfilm resources which can be accessed by individuals who wish to research their family history and discover ancestral ties to the railroad.

Ontario - Polar Bear Express
The Polar Bear Express is a Canadian passenger train operated by the Ontario Northland Railway in Northern Ontario. Service was introduced in 1964. While designated as a passenger train, the Polar Bear Express also carries specialized equipment including boxcars for canoes, snowmobiles and all terrain vehicles, chain cars (flat cars with tie downs) for carrying cars and light trucks (there are no roads to Moosonee so vehicles come in and out by train) and baggage and express cars. In the past a special car for canoes was included but these are now carried in boxcars.

It operates 5 days per week year-round and connects Cochrane with Moosonee. During the summer months there is an additional train on Sundays and the train often includes a full length dome car. Prior to 2012, the train carried a full dining car during the summer.
