Railroad Society of Newfoundland

  For 90 years, beginning in 1898, a narrow gauge railroad ran from  Port aux Basques to St. John providing the only means of traveling across the interior of Newfoundland.  When the Trans-Canada Highway was completed in 1965 rail traffic dropped significantly and by 1988 the railway was abandoned. There isn’t a lot at this museum other than the rolling stock located outside - a steam locomotive, a huge snow plow train, a diesel electric locomotive and some passenger cars.

  The train cars are not accessible.

   The parking lot is large enough for any RV.  Museum
48.96546, -57.92144
