This is a great collection of period public transit (streetcars, subway cars, and buses) dating from the 1890s to the 1960s, with many of the cars restored for a leisurely trip into an idyllic wooded run and back. We arrived at 4 and only had...More

This attraction is definitely worth the admission. We went here and rode on three different types of streetcars, but you could ride as many times as you like. They have a track that stretches from Guelph Line to next country road over. You can get...More

What a great way to spend the day. Riding the rails & exploring old TTC cars. My 4 year old niece was entertained for hours. Be sure to bring cashvyo enjoy the "ice cream train". The passion the volunteers have for trains shows!!!

I would not say I was a huge fan of trains but this was a great way to experience transit from the late 1800s and early 1900s. It is a little out of the way from Toronto but worth the trip. Volunteers were friendly and...More

This place was great. The day I visited they had 3 different street cars running and I rode each one! The warehouse with all the subway cars was really neat. A super great way to spend the day.
