60th Anniversary Year for the Halton County Radial Railway!
One of our favourite local operating museums is the Halton County Radial Railway (HCRR) which is only a one hour drive from downtown Toronto. This is their 60th Anniversary year so stay tuned here for more news about celebrations this season. The HCCR recently presented us with the 6 foot high poster shown above of their restored Peter Witt streetcar which once ran on the streets of Toronto.
Their opening day this year is Saturday, May 3rd, 2014. Here is what they say about their attraction:
"Come ride the streetcars! Located at 13629 Guelph Line in Milton, Ontario the Halton County Radial Railway (HCRR) is a full-size operating electric railway and museum, featuring historic electric railcars operating on two kilometers of scenic track. The HCRR is owned and operated by the Ontario Electric Railway Historical Association (OERHA), a non-profit, educational organization. The HCRR is proud to be Ontario's first and largest electric railway museum."
Come visit the HCRR booth as well on Saturday, May 24th or Sunday, May 25th at the Toronto Railway Museum when we will be hosting our Toronto Doors Open Train Show event in Roundhouse Park. Mark this event in your calendar!
