Items of interest for every member of the family — nostalgia for the grownups and model trains for the youngsters — to delight and inform

Canadian Railway history

A sinew of steel rails bound young Canada together from coast to coast to coast, and became the backbone of expansion and settlement before the advent of roads, bringing settlers to their new homes and transporting goods to world-wide markets.

Burlington history
Once known as the fruit basket of Canada, Burlington has evolved as a thriving business centre and wonderful family venue.

Railway artifacts
Almost every Canadian family has had kin who worked as railway men.  A collection of their tools of the trade evokes memories of their toil.

Model railway diorama
Youngsters and adults alike will love seeing the Village of Freeman as it may have looked in the 1920’s, depicted in an extensive,  interactive, operating miniature railway.
