Canadian National Railway steam engine 6218 is the cornerstone artifact of the Fort Erie Railway Museum. Built in 1942, the 4-8-4 wheel configuration Northern type served well into the 1960s.
In its retirement, it serves as a reminder of days past when Fort Erie boasted the third-largest rail yard in Canada. Visitors can sit where the engineers once commanded this mighty 40804 Northern or explore the caboose, a “tiny house” that served as living quarters for the crew.
The original Grand Trunk Railway Station in Ridgeway and the CN B-1 station were moved to the railroad museum site.
