Railway Century Exhibition at the Stratford Perth Museum
  • The influence of rail is a major element of the sister exhibit “You Are Here.
    Rail connects two momentous events that transformed Perth County – the linking of the railways and the establishment of the Locomotive Repair Shops in Stratford.
    For a hundred years the railway lines that connected this region to the rest of world were responsible for a growth in industry – the ability to get materials to Stratford and the ability to get finished products, both industrial and agricultural, to the rest of the world and markets.
  • Even more significant was the establishment of CNR Repair Shops. A monster employer, during their heyday, nearly 40% of Stratford homes had a member that worked at The Shops.


This event is wheelchair accessible.

Cost: $7/A, $6/SR/ST, $5/CH, $20/Family (Two adults and two children)

Location: Stratford Perth Museum, Stratford, 4275 Line 34, Stratford
