Excellent locomotive to view and some nice exhibits, the Golden Spike was laid just East of Revelstoke so there is real feeling of history attached to the Museum.

A brilliant museum to visit especially if you are a train geek like my girlfriend. This visit earned me many many brownie points. Jokes aside an excellent museum full to the brim with history and information.

We were impressed with the amount of excellent information about railroading and the coach car and steam engine displays. I learned a great deal about how a railroad through the mountains is surveyed and constructed.
