The railway has been part of St. Thomas since the completion of the London and Port Stanley Railway in 1856. More than 26 railways have passed through the city. This provided the foundation for the birth of St. Thomas due to the provision of employment and, subsequently, the income to sustain the community. At one point, St. Thomas was interchangeable with the term “Railway City.” It was also known as the “Railway Capital of Canada” in its heyday. St. Thomas was a convenient shortcut between Chicago and New York: two major railway cities, especially concerning freight shipment. South Western Ontario is also predominantly flat terrain which is perfect for railways. The city and surrounding area grew rapidly which resulted in immense change for the community. St. Thomas became the “Railway Capital of Canada.” The Elgin County Railway Museum is located in the former Michigan Central Railroad (MCRR) locomotive repair shops, just south of the Canada Southern (CASO) train station. The 55,000 square foot “shops” building have served as headquarters of the museum since 1988. The brewery operation features a 20 hectoliter system comprised of a kettle, mash tun, hot liquor tank, and a number of 10,20 & 40HL fermentators and conditioning tanks. Please stop by and visit, we would love to show you around and demonstrate the brewing process. Samples are encouraged with every tour! Tours are available every day, however it is best to call ahead so we can arrange some additional staff. Please stop in and see how we brew your favourite locally handcrafted beer. THIS VENUE IS WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE
