Climb the stairs of the historicVia Rail Union Station to tracks 1 & 2 where you will discover the only museum in Winnipeg dedicated to the preservation of Manitoba's rail heritage. See where it all began. View the first steam locomotive on the Canadian Prairies, The Countess of Dufferin. Continue on and view an early-generation diesel locomotive just like the ones still used today. 
                          

Approximately 37,500 square feet is filled with railway artifacts, many more than we are able to picture here.

There are 2 tracks filled from end to end of the museum which are both 750 feet in length. Tracks 1 & 2 which both contain actual trains and equipment. Then there are platforms 1 & 2 which are both filled with displays, artifacts and railway related vehicles, trucks, fire trucks from both railways. Explore our website, and then come and see it in person.
