We spent about 2 hours here for the Saturday night Halloween train. It's a fun and unique tram ride and haunted house experience plus a bonus science show. We took our 8 year old and her 10 year old cousin. The kids and adults both enjoyed it. We all dressed in costumes. We were definitely the only adults in costume... More

This place is tram (streetcar) heaven! The staff are very friendly and super informative, they can show you around and love answering questions. They made efforts to make everyone welcome, especially younger visitors. The facilities are good: shop, snacks, restrooms, free parking etc. Your entrance fee includes unlimited rides on the trams through the woods and around the site. A... More

Wonderful location. Amazing volunteer staff and an excellent attraction for all. Much history to be learned and a really nice experience. Would highly recommend. One wish would be that the tourist line be a bit longer, but that probably won't happen because of property issues.

Thank Walter I

A nice little tourist railway celebrating the old Electric interurban and urban transport systems. A nice car barn museum with renovated streetcars, interurban cars and subway trains, really clean and well kept, although a little bit dark for photography. The ride on the streetcar was a delight, with the original cars from around 100 years ago that we went on.... More

The museum is now quite professional with lots of Ontario streetcars and interurban equipment on display and several operating on their 2km line. My wife and I had a great Sunday afternoon riding the trams, getting ice cream at the other end of the land, having a picnic in the gardens and dropping by to see the museum store. Volunteers...

We came upon this place as we were driving to another attraction nearby. We thought we would finish our afternoon off by going for a tour of the street car museum. Not only was it interesting to see the old street cars but we also got to ride on three different street cars, short rides but so cool. The conductors... More

If you lived in Toronto in the 50's and 60's this will bring back memories of a place that seldom saw murders, rolled up the sidewalks at night... And you took the RedRocket everywhere. Had to have transfers to cross zones. And thats just the nostalgia for seniors. For little ones, this is a magical place. Ride with Dad in... More

My little one loves trains and this place was exactly what he needed. The train rides were fun and the barn with all the old trains were incredible and interesting. Spent all day and it was nice and quiet and clean. A lot of history to be explored an learned
