The NL Railway Museum in Hunbernouth is certainly worth the time. If you have ever ridden the rails, you owe yourself a visit to this historic train site - both steam and diesel locomotives along with the old dining car, snowblower and caboose all of...More

Hard to imagine that there used to be active rail in NFLD. Really cool to stop in and get the history. Nice and cheap and fun to walk around for half hour.

Wife "emigrated" from Nfld in 1966 and travelled on the Nfld rail from St John's to Port-Aux-Basque. I'm visiting the cars, she remembered that trip like it was yesterday. We had simply happened to see the Museum, but it gave us great pleasure. Although it...More

A good opportunity to see narrow gauge engines & rolling stock that used to criss-cross Newfoundland. You can get to go inside and see first hand what these vehicles were like when the Newfie Bullet carried freight and passengers in the by-gone years.

The Newfie Bullet was the very slow narrow gage railway that crossed Newfoundland. The last passenger run was in 1969 and the last freight ran in 1988. This museum has engines, cars, snow plows and lots of other artifacts. Worth a stop.

Rode this train as a kid--great to get into the coach car again and sit close to the on board heater!

If you want to know more of the famous 'Newfie Bulket' this is the place to visit in Corner Brook. Not only are there interesting railway cars to walk through but the site itself is very well kept. A must see when visiting C.B.

Unfortunately, the exhibit was closed when we visited, but we were able to look at the trains. My friends had never seen narrow-gauge railroad before so this was fascinating, particularly since they noticed the difference quite quickly. It was a good look at the old...More
