I would not say I was a huge fan of trains but this was a great way to experience transit from the late 1800s and early 1900s. It is a little out of the way from Toronto but worth the trip. Volunteers were friendly and...More

This place was great. The day I visited they had 3 different street cars running and I rode each one! The warehouse with all the subway cars was really neat. A super great way to spend the day.
