Gallery - Grand Trunk Railway

The Grand Trunk Railway came to Niagara Falls in August of 1882, when it purchased the Great Western Railway and assumed all of it's operations. The Great Western Railway owned lines extending 1371 kilometers, running from Niagara Falls to Toronto, with branches to London, Windsor and the Bruce Peninusula. The Grand Trunk Railway became part of Canadian National in 1922.
