Using authentic locomotive controls, visitors will embark on an immersive experience as they learn to operate a train on the Toronto Rail Lands in the 1950s.

On Family Day 2020, visitors to the Toronto Railway Museum will be able to "Connect The Canadian" – a unique and exclusive simulator event unlike any other. "Connect The Canadian" will have you assume the role of a railyard switcher, connecting cars to make the famous Canadian Pacific train: The Canadian. You will learn how important yard switching was for railway companies and get an in-depth look into railway operations.

This challenge is open to all ages, though recommended for individuals aged 10 and up.

Tickets: $4.42 plus HST
