Railway Christmas

Railway Christmas

From November 17, 2017 to January 7, 2018, Exporail, the Canadian Railway Museum will transport its visitors into the Magic of Christmas. Many vehicles will be decorated and illuminated in the Grand Gallery, activities will be offered and Santa will meet the visitors! Railway Christmas is a must-see event for the whole family!

Family Activities

Upon entering the Grand Gallery, visitors will immediately be immersed in a festive atmosphere with decorated vehicles: a freight car full of toys, illuminated locomotives, an elves’ sled, a railroad car filled with reindeers… Christmas stockings will be hidden in vehicles all over the exhibit hall, so be alert! Under the Christmas tree, a model electric train will remind visitors of the traditional Christmas spirit and entice them to visit our model train room where two networks are in operation.

Railway Christmas

Along with their parents or grandparents, children can visit our Craft Workshop from 10 am to 11:30 am, 2 pm to 3:30 pm where they can create their own Christmas tree decoration.

Creativity and tasty treats will be present again this year with a Christmas cookies’ decoration activity from 10:30 am to 11:30 am and from 2 pm to 3 pm. For $2, participants will be given a gingerbread cookie and the necessary material to make it look festive! A glass of milk will be offered by Producteurs de lait de Montérégie Ouest!

Come and Meet Santa

Children will be able to write Santa a letter and mail it in our mail-express car in time for Christmas! From November 19 to December 17, 2017, they can even meet Santa in person: Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 am to noon and from 1 pm to 3 pm

Don’t forget your mittens and tuques to take a ride on the Miniature Railway outside!

Visit of the Saskatchewan Car

The Saskatchewan car was built in 1883 for Sir William Cornelius Van Horne (1843-1915), who used it during the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway’s transcontinental line, and later as a private car until 1915. For the event, this car will be decorated in the spirit of Victorian Christmas. Visitors, 12 and older, will be able to learn more during an English tour at 11:30 am, 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm.
