REVELSTOKE RAILWAY MUSEUM BRINGS BACK POPULAR
“RAILWAY DAY” FAMILY EVENT ON SEPTEMBER 25, 2022
We are pleased to announce the return of “Railway Day”, our 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 with 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 certain to please, and they can work off some of that young 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. 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.
Much more is planned…follow us on Facebook and Instagram for more details in the coming weeks.
Admission to the Museum and the Railway Day event are by donation.
So please join us trackside on Sunday, September 25th!
We look forward to seeing you.
