Located in the bike park, near the Estriade bike path, the museum is housed within one of our treasured heritage, a caboose. The "Caboose" was the last car of the freight trains. It served as an itinerant residence and workplace for the conductor and rear brakeman.
The exhibition traces the development of the Waterloo rail network and its builder, Mr. Asa Belknap Foster, that we nicknamed "King of the Road to Canadian iron", will tell his story as well as the history of Waterloo through various explanatory and with an illustrated comic book style section to compliment the child visitation panels.
The museum also includes a model of the city from the "Waterloo train time", funded by Heritage Canada, with its main attractions during the construction of the railway.
