Fabulous train museum with historical trains of Canadian eras. Tucked away on a side street in this small town the railway museum is a delight not only to the train buff but to any history buff and tourist in general .

Even if you're not originally from Brighton, you can find items to enjoy. In fact, if you just study the railway cars outside, you could spend and hour here.
