    Visit the Canada car in French or in English (10 to 20 minutes) with a guided tour.

    Built for the Grand Trunk Railway in 1897 by the Wagner Palace Car Company, Car Canada served as a business car throughout most of its career. Charles Melville Hays used the car during his presidency of the GTR until his death on the Titanic in 1912. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle traveled on the car during his visit to Canada in 1914. The interior decor is much as it was in the 1890's. This car was donated by the Hays family.
