Choo Choo – get those conductor hats on, because the streetcars are waiting for you at the Halton County Radial Railroad!
This full-size operating electric railway and museum features actual historic electric railcars that operate on 2km of track. It is also the provinces first AND largest electric railway museum – pretty cool!
The museum started because a group of men wanted to save a streetcar from being sent to the scrap yard. From there, the collection has grown, and now families can explore the variety of historic streetcars, as well as radial cars, work cars, and a great collection of photos and memorabilia which you can explore!
The oldest rail car in the collection dates all the way back to the late 1800s – so there is a lot of history to cover!
If getting face to face with incredible railcars wasn’t enough, the Halton County Radial Railway let’s you actually RIDE the cars themselves! In fact, your admission to the railway gives you unlimited rides on the 2km track – AND it stops at an ice-cream shop. What more could you want!
Don’t forget to check out the events that the railway hold across the year, because there are some fun seasonal ones you won’t want to miss, including the Halloween Evening Shows, and Christmas on the Rails!
Whether or not your kids loved trains before the visit, they will when they leave, because it’s no ordinary museum. The Halton County Radial Railway let’s kids become part of history!
