From the web page:
We visited the Elgin County Railway Museum in August 2016, and found a huge, well stocked, but largely unknown historical railway workshops, filled with with all sorts of railway equipment. The current owners have some grand plans (warning: large download) for the redevelopment of the site, but it will be difficult to ever recover the central part this site played in the history of Canadian Railways. Indeed, the workshops themselves are overshadowed by the huge St. Thomas Railway Station right next door, which is well identified in tourist itineraries. Perhaps if the Museum owners can bring their plans to fruition this might all change. But it will be a long and expensive journey!
Port Stanley Tourist Railway is a delightful little railway operating over the last 11 kms of The London and Port Stanley Railway Company, construction of which was completed in 1856. Port Stanley is on the shores of Lake Erie, and was once a thriving port, shipping out coal and timber via the Great Lakes. We went for a ride on the train, and enjoyed the great Canadian hospitality!
