Toronto Railway Heritage Centre now open
The Toronto Railway Heritage Centre (aka John St. Roundhouse) is now officially open. My son & I visited it today and were really impressed. Everything looks so clean, newly-restored and well-organized.

In additional to having several heritage locos (namely a CNR Northern steamer and a GP7 diesel, plus a few other diesels), an operating turntable, a model train show, and an outdoor miniature railway, they also had two diesel cabs inside the roundhouse fitted with train simulators. There's also the restored Don Station, Cabin D (an old gatehouse or signal box, as they're called in the UK) and a few other sites.

I'll try to post some of my own pics in due course, but, in the meantime, I've posed links to a few news stories below. This is an awesome Canadian railway museum, highly recommended! In the future, they now plan to open on weekends.

Steam Whistle Brewery also operates in the east end of the roundhouse, giving out free beer samples!
