- 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.
