  • The Archive's Voice

    June 10, 2018 to September 2, 2018

    The discoveries that were made during the preparation of this activity enable us to shed some light on the towns that make up the MRC de Roussillon to give you a glimpse of the riches that our railway heritage has bequeathed to our local regional county municipality. The train enables us to retrace the social, religious, political, and cultural elements of the MRC. It provides an opportunity to discover, or to rediscover, certain historical elements that remain embedded in the daily lives of its residents. We therefore proudly present The Archive’s Voice: Tales from Roussillon. Every Sunday in english at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

  • Railroad Day / Steel Challenge

    September 23, 2018

    As part of National Rail Safety Week, Exporail presents Railroad Day / Steel Challenge in collaboration with CN.  The CN committee is pleased to present its Steel Challenge event at Exporail, the Canadian Railway Museum.  This activity brings together teams of 20 people who will pull a diesel-electric locomotive over a short distance as fast as they can. The purpose of the event is to raise funds for Special Olympics and to launch National Rail Safety Week events in the region. 

    We invite all visitors and family members of participants to come and cheer them on, on Sunday, September 23rd

    Come and see Obie, a mini-CN locomotive, and its train of  a flat car and a caboose.  Obie will offer rides to children, and sensitize them in a fun and informative way to the dangers of playing near tracks. 

    The party spirit will be felt all over the museum site, with pennants, balloons and inflatable games for toddlers.  In addition, it will be an opportunity for families to get their picture taken wearing railroader's clothing. 

    The regular activities of the Museum will also be offered this Sunday: exhibitions, guided tours, movie presentation, demonstrations of the operating turntable and telegraphy, rides on the Miniature Railway and in the passenger train.
