After going to many child-oriented attractions during the summer of 2013, I convinced my 6 year-old daughter to go to the Halton County Radial Railway. For people coming from Durham (as we were) it was a long drive, but it was totally worth it. I had last visited the HCRR about 15 years ago, and I was delighted by it then. Today, however, it is totally amazing. As I walked into the large barn where they store the bulk of their collection I could not believe my eyes. There are representative samples of radial railway cars, subway cars, streetcars, specialty cars (including some that I remember seeing in service). We rode on a radial car from the London - Port Stanley line, and then on another open car, both of which were superb. The stop to get ice cream was magical - the lady serving there was so kind, the setup in the old street car was really neat, and to top it all off, an extremely friendly neighbourhood cat was walking around outside welcoming everybody. The volunteers who run this place should be incredibly proud of what they have accomplished. This is an awesome, important place for railfans and an accessible day out for everybody.
