Come with us on a journey through a day in the life of a station platform and relive the sights and sounds that generations of people knew as they arrived and departed from Winnipeg’s Union Station. Walk among the machines that worked here and see how the railways kept passengers moving. Join us on the walking tour and see how trains were stocked and serviced. Learn about architecture designed around steam engines and heavy weight coaches.

Built at the Fort Rouge Garage in 1909, it road the rails in Winnipeg until is was retired in 1955. Now housed at the Winnipeg Railway Museum, Streetcar 356 is being restored by wonderful volunteers.
