After six years of successful operation, the Toronto Railway Historical Association is discontinuing the monthly tours of Union Station led by TRHA Historian Derek Boles. The ongoing revitalization of the station has made the tours difficult due to construction noise and increasingly inaccessible tour routes. Also, there has been little demand for the tours in recent months and usually only a few people interested.
The tours grew out of the Toronto Railway Historical Association's involvement in the annual Doors Open event at Union Station. The regular monthly tours began in March 2006 and, in that time, Derek has conducted 1835 people around Union Station. The TRHA will continue to be involved with the annual Doors Open event, as we will in May 2012.
We believe that there is a bright future for Union Station tours, especially as the revitalization proceeds towards completion and there will be heightened public interest in the station, not only in the changes being made, but in the restored historical elements. The TRHA will revitalize the tours when the time is right.
