September 25 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmDonation
The Revelstoke Railway Museum is pleased to announce the return of “Railway Day,” its hallmark family-friendly event, on Sunday, September 25, 2022, from 10 AM to 4 PM. A perennial family favourite event, Railway Day was last held in 2019 before the pandemic. It’s back!—
Enjoy three performances by May Davis on the Flatcar Stage. Climb aboard some of our historic pieces of rolling stock, which are normally closed, including our mighty and massive Selkirk Spreader. Visit some of Revelstoke’s community organizations and meet first responders. See special demonstrations of some of our railway equipment, including our beautiful newly-restored handcar.
Kids can participate in face painting, get a balloon animal, enjoy an all-new scavenger hunt, and share their masterpieces in our colouring contest. Kid-friendly games are sure to please, and they can work off some of that youthful energy in the bouncy castle. Kids of all ages (including adults!) can dress up in their finest railway garb and compete for prizes in our costume contest.
As always, we offer informative exhibits, including our beautiful new exhibit, “Revelstoke is a Railway Town,” which celebrates Revelstoke’s colourful railway history. The Revelstoke Model Railway Club will also be on-site, running trains all day.
If all of this makes you hungry, some of Revelstoke’s food trucks will be on-site, offering something tasty to eat. Also, as a fundraiser for the Museum, we have a 50/50 draw and a special raffle for some great prizes, including an HP All-In-One computer, a Polar Express Model Train and an X-Box. This is also a great time to stock up for Christmas or buy yourself something special in our Museum Store, which will have sale prices on some items and special discounts for members.
Admission to the Museum and the Railway Day event are by donation. So please join us trackside on Sunday, September 25! We look forward to seeing you.
