Explore our history through the Railway Museum’s new show
By David F. Rooney
Our national history is so intertwined with the development of railways from 1836 to the present day that the fascinating Railway Witnesses: The Memory of a Nation exhibition jointly presented by the Revelstoke Railway Museum and Exporail, the Canadian Railway Museum, is a very apt title.
Using old films and photos, century-old paintings, historical artifacts and text panels, this show recounts the history of railway development alongside Canada’s economic and social growth.
Railway buffs and people interested in our history will likely find this show, which runs until September 16, of great interest.
