The Radial Railway Museum is located about 45 minutes north east of Hamilton, and is well worth the drive if you are anywhere near the area (as both Toronto and Hamilton are great railfan places). Myself and my best friend John Buxton stopped here on the way back from a weekend in Toronto, way back in 2006. We were both impressed with what they had here!
Their website is here
They have a very nice collection of a wide range of transportation items, including streetcars, busses, signals, and a nice depot. In fact, if you look at the list of stuff in their collection, it seems to go on forever :-) http://www.hcry.org/collection.html
Getting here isn't too difficult.
The GPS coordinates are:
The coordinates are for the main visitors entrance off Guelph Line, as shown below.
If you're travelling the QEW - 403, take the Guelph Line exit, and head NW about 23 miles.
Since there are so many other ways to get here, punch in the address or coordinates into your GPS, or pick up a good map of the area!
We start out at the "north end" of the line. Looks like they are adding tracks to the north side of the one carbarn.
The north loop.
Parking lot and entrance.
A small sampling of their rolling stock.....
Train Order Semaphore
Switch Stands and a Spring Switch
A few misc signals
A signal from the TTC heavy rail Metro line showing a few of it's aspects
Anyone have a clue?
We didn't have the time to railfan in Guelph, but it looks like it probably offers a lot of stuff to do. There is a GO/VIA stop in town, and it appears they have a CN steam engine on display, looking at the map.... oooops, looks like, in looking at Google's Street View, they moved it to "re-do" the approach to the bridge.
Darn, the steamer is gone....
You have several choices if coming to Guelph by train from Toronto.
You Tell Me?
Don't know the story behind this, but it looks pretty cool! You'll pass it if travelling "up" Guelph Line from the QEW.
