Elmira Railway Museum

For many years Elmira Station served as the end of the line for Prince Edward Island's railway. Today, displays of photographs, maps and artifacts, a recreated station master's office and ladies' waiting room recount the fascinating story of railroading on the Island.

Take a ride on our minature railway. See the speeders and our trolley too.

Hike or bike along the scenic Confederation Trail through nearby woodlots and farmland converted from abandoned railway lines a number of years ago.
