The Halton County Radial Railway is a working museum of electric streetcars, other railway vehicles, trolleybusses and buses. It is operated by the Ontario Electric Railway Historical Association (OERHA). It is focused primarily on the history of the Toronto Transit Commission and its predecessor, the Toronto Transportation Commission (TTC), with a collection including PCC, and Peter Witt cars, earlier streetcars and Gloucester series and Montreal-built subway cars.The museum is open to the public, with rides on many of its vehicles. It is located between the villages of Rockwood and Campbellville in Milton, Ontario, Canada, along part of the Toronto Suburban Railway’s former right-of-way. The tracks conform to TTC’s gauge of, 60mm wider than. Vehicles from other systems must be altered to accommodate the tracks, and cars intended for third-rail power must be reconfigured for use with overhead wire. In 1889, electric railway service on routes radiating from Toronto, Ontario began. An Ontario Historical Plaque was erected at the Halton County Radial Railway Museum by the province to commemorate the Radial Railways' role in Ontario's heritage. Museum Peter Witt streetcars can be seen in the 2005 film Cinderella Man on the streets of Toronto to give it a 1930s New York City appearance.

  • Was there 3 years ago when our son was just over a year old. Yesterday we went back and it's still a great place. Learned more as they've added more cars to their tour shed. My son enjoyed it and I think we'll be back again for their Halloween and Christmas special events. Great place for kids to learn about rail cars and take a lazy ride through the woods.
  • a fun trip for the kids. lots of different trains I think there's about 4 or 5 different trains you can take and there's a pond with frogs in it that the kids love.
  • Old TTC cool I recommend vintage too.
  • Great place for families and a chance to learn more about streetcars, railway, transit and Ontario history.
  • Awesome place to go for kids. Worth every penny. I had great time with my son. He loved it. Stuff was awesome. I've been told they are open for Halloween and Christmas. Beautiful scenery. Rides are included in admission price. This place is highly recommended!
