The collection has been accumulated over a number
of years of effort. We are always on the lookout for Niagara related railway material. All material
collected is earmarked for preservation. It will never be sold or otherwise disposed of.
Our artifacts come from a wide variety of railways including the Canadian National, Canadian Pacific, New
York Central, Wabash, Penn Central, NS&T, TH&B and Great Gorge Route. The collection contains a
good mixture of all these railways and many more.
