This was a great afternoon with my daughter and grandson.A great way to learn about the local history.There is also an incredibly nice display of a local artist's work in a room at the back of the train.Very impressive.Every wagon of the train has a different story.

The Ron Morel Memorial Museum has an extensive permanent display on the Kapuskasing Internment/Prisoner of War Camp of World War I. It features an explanation of why internment happened, many photographs of life in the camp and artwork done by the internees/prisoners. The Internment/Prisoner of War cemetery is just a few kilometres from the museum and is easily accessible. It was recently renovated with a grant from the Canadian First World War Internment Recognition Fund.
