Little gem of a museum. Guides well trained and professional. I am not a train enthusiast, but tour was informative and explained the development of the rail network in Canada. Thanks

Located at the site of the former John Street Roundhouse, the Toronto Rail Museum is a small, but good rail museum. Take the tour. Of particular interest was the switching tower and the history of the Ontario Rail system.

It was a nice spot. They have a decent amount of trains on hand and I learned a few things. I’m not really a train person but I liked it.

I believe it is open 12-5 on Sundays- recommended duration is about 60 - 90 mins depending on how fascinating you find trains!
