1392 Locomotive

Below is a collection of videos created by members or visitors to the museum. If you have something that was either shot at the museum or other locations where our locomotives or cars were used, and would like to have the video(s) displayed for everyone to see, please contact us!

The above three videos are courtesy of Leo de Groot. To view other train videos created by Leo, check out his YouTube Channel “degrootl”.

On September 1, 2008, steam locomotive 1392 underwent a flue cleaning. A cupful of sand was thrown in the firebox while the locomotive accelerated. The draft caused by acceleration pulled the sand through the flues, which cleaned out the carbon deposits, and produced the plume of black smoke from the stack. (Video courtesy of Tim Dixon.)

NO SMOKING of any type is allowed anywhere on the museum grounds.  This includes the museum’s parking lot. Thank you for your cooperation.

Since the museum is an industrial site, for the safety of your dog, and for the safety of our other visitors, please leave your dog at home. Service dogs are of course welcome.

We regret that not all of the museum’s grounds and collection are wheelchair accessible. Baby and child strollers are not recommended for touring the site. Plan to bring a carrier.

Rail Safety

All visitors are reminded that this is an industrial site and that proper footwear is necessary. Please obey all warning signs, DO NOT CLIMB on the equipment and pay attention to uneven entrances in display cars. Visitors ride on equipment at their own risk.


The Museum supports the efforts of Canada’s railways to promote safety. We highly recommend that our guests also visit the Operation Lifesaver website. There you’ll find more information about rail safety, including in-person presentations, videos, and other resources.
