London Railway Heritage Day is an event to celebrate the history and legacy of the railway in London and all of Canada.
A celebration of 150 plus years of an industry that helped to shape and connect the country, it is also a celebration of people’s fascination with the culture of the railway and the great iron giants themselves.
This event will bring together historians, musicians, enthusiasts and railway fans of all ages. Featuring food trucks, a live music stage, an “All Aboard” Conductor call competition plus a “Pop Up Railway Museum”, this will be an event for the whole family.
The music portion of this event is hosted by London band “Engine 86” and will bring together some of the city’s finest musicians from a variety of genres.
