  • Don't know why? My kids love train so do I, may be guys always love big machine, they do a lot of great job there and I think they still working on because there still lot of train not yet restore, mostly lack of budget I believe, but you do learn as lot about history of train in Canada west coast. I take away one star because you will find very very hot inside those exhibit(train), no AC in the train or those old farm house, I visited there in summer just like in the oven, my family couldn't stay too long inside the train even though there are very nice. On the other hand they have a mini train ride my kids love it. It is a good place to explore with family.
  • THIS PLACE IS AMAZING. IT IS OFTEN OVERLOOKED AS THERE ARE MORE POPULAR ATTRACTIONS NEARBY. YOU WILL FIND SOME VERY INTERESTING VINTAGE TRAIN CARS AND ENGINES. THIS PLACE IS HISTORIC AND FUN TO VISIT.
  • Beautiful place. Great venue. Neat yard to wonder around to check out some trains and a bit of squamish history
  • Amazing place for the kids. This place is a huge part of the community with events all the time. Staff and volunteers are just amazing people. I hope you can visit them to enjoy what they do.
  • Cool place. I was here for the CIMC conference and I really enjoyed it. The trains were and added bonus!
