Live out your railway dreams with a visit to this collection of vintage piston-pumpers at the Alberta Railway Museum (located just north of Edmonton), and experience a true labour of love. The museum resembles a one-to-one scale model railroad, along with real running trains. Consisting of more than 50 locomotives and cars from Canadian National Railways and Northern Alberta Railways, some of the vehicles are fully restored and others have yet to be started. The Alberta Railway Museum also has a railway station, a water tank, a fire hall, a bunkhouse, two workshops and several more vintage buildings have been impeccable maintained.
Fuelled by Passion
The attention to detail, the history, and the dedication of the Alberta Pioneer Railway Association (APRA) volunteers make this museum a rare treat. The APRA is a non-profit organization that focuses on collecting these priceless memorabilia and also in preserving, interpreting and restoring any historical artifacts that are associated with the Canadian Railways. New members to the APRA are always encouraged and welcomed!
Choo Choo Choices
The Alberta Railway Museum is more than a home to these foundational Canadian historical items. Visitors who find particular archives or collections interesting can visit the gift shop to buy intricate souvenirs, and snacks and beverages are available for those who need a break from the steaming experience at the museum. Guided and self-guided tours are offered and museum notes are also available for visitors. Donations of cash, artifacts, supplies, photographs and printed materials are welcome and recognized with a tax receipt.
