MuseumsAgencies & AssociationsAttractionsHistorical Sites
The North America Railway Hall of Fame is the main part of the cultural space at the Canada Southern (CASO) Railway Station. Built in 1871-1873, the Station has been a prominent landmark of the City of St. Thomas for over a century. It was an important railway junction between Detroit, Buffalo, Chicago, and New York. In the early 1900s, over 100 trains per day passed by the station. St. Thomas became known as the Railway Capital of Canada.
The North America Railway Hall of Fame is committed to preserving and honouring our railway heritage and ensuring the future sustainability of the Canada Southern Railway Station.
They are also part of the Railworks Coalition, a community group of railway heritage properties that have come together for the joint benefit of preserving and protecting St. Thomas and area's rail assets.
Also included in this group is the Canada Southern (CASO) Station, the Elgin County Railway Museum, the Iron Horse Festival and the St.Thomas Elevated Park.
