The Schreiber Discovery Centre & Railway Museum is located in Schreiber in Ontario’s Superior Country. Climb aboard this museum inside a refurbished 1953 train car and learn about this towns history. Schreiber was founded in the 1880s as a railway construction camp so the train car museum it is quite fitting as a tribute to its history. Learn about the Canadian Pacific Railway through antiques, relics and documents. It is the ideal museum for the railway and history enthusiast.
An information panel here reads; “This car was built in 953 by the Canadian Car & Foundry Co. Ltd and was used system wide until “The Dominion” removed it in 1966. In 1971 it was converted into a Sleeper car for the Winnipeg Auxiliary and renumbered to 411733 for work service. The rail car was donated by Canadian Pacific Railway to the Township of Schreiber in 2005. It was then refurbished into a Tourist Information Centre and Rail Museum and renumbered back to its original 4773, as you see it here today.”
