Oh, my. You had to be one hearty soul to work the railway. Unique perspective on the challenge of bringing railways to this beautiful mountain area of BC. Live trains passing just outside. Great stuff for kids, too.

A great railway museum for those who enjoy railways and museums. And is well suited for all weathers, well located on the edge of the nice town of Revelstoke,

Interesting museum about the history of rail transportation in western Canada. Present an old locomotive where we were explained to some technical details by a very nice guy. Show several other exhibits - in some of them you can walk in. Really worth to visit!
