The Niagara Railway Museum is gearing up for its first ever Open House at our new home, the former CNR diesel shop at 21 Warren St. in Fort Erie, Ont., July 1st to 4th, 10am to 4pm daily. We will have our steam locomotive on display inside the shop, and we plan to have the Plymouth diesel outside with the cab open to visitors.
